Transit of Mercury

UCL Observatory, Mill Hill, London, 9 May 2016
At the observatory as an artist-in-residence it was thrilling to witness the transit of Mercury. Mercury is seen as a tiny black dot crossing the vast majestic red sun, our nearest star. My photograph was taken outside with a Sony compact camera through H-alpha filter on the Solarscope.
