There's a little black spot on the sun today.
Documenting the once-in-a-lifetime Transit of Venus
Woodburn STEM teachers Ami Silkey and Brea Cohen imaged the historic transit of venus across the face of the sun June 5, 2012. The transit event will not occur again for more than 100 years. Accurate measurement of the transit was the goal of a number of historic 18th century scientific voyages, some of which ended in tragedy.
The telscope and solar filter used to produce the above image of the transit was provided by a Pacific STEM Teaching Pathways Woodburn STEM Partnership grant.
