The smallest sun eclipse in our sun system you can get
On Monday the 9th of May the Transit of Mercury
started in Munich at 13:12 MESZ and could be
observed nearly arond the world. The exit time
of this little disk was nearly equal to the
horizon touch down of the sun in the evenig at
Planet Mercury on the way crossing the sun disk.
Very turbulent atmospheric conditions and upcoming
clouds allowed only some more or less sharp photos
with a Zeiss refractor 840/63mm f13,3, on Canon
5DMIII. Exposure time 1/6400 to 1/250, ASA 50-100.
The transit at 19:10 MESZ with some cloud pattern, and
a passing airplane in a distance of apprx 160 km let
this ca.7:18 hours event end somehow romantic.
