Trying to check out details on the Solar surface. Must have been the most bland surface in a loooong time! Hardly any sunspots. Nevertheless with some aggressive contrast stretching and masking it's possible to see if the surface has indeed rotated during the time span of the Transit. See the two tiny spots in the middle? They actually move; but you do need the animation to get convinced. So make sure that you have clicked "original" below and then wait for the animation to download fully...

other sizes: small medium original auto
