Above, a lucky shot catches a jet crossing the
sun at the same time Mercury is also crossing
the sun (small black dot at top right). This photo
was taken at 1/60 sec. on Fuji Velvia 50 slide film.
At left is a sequence showing the transit. The last
four frames are 2.5 minutes apart. All others are
5 minutes apart. Each frame is 1/125 sec.
on Fuji Velvia 50 slide film, taken through
a Pronto scope with a 2x teleconverter, but the frames
vary in quality because these were shot through high
clouds. These were taken from the parking lot of the
Las Vegas Convention center where I was attending
the annual Comdex convention.
