Only 16 days after an 80%+ partial solar eclipse in southern California, another interesting and even rarer event got the attention of JCMDI's cameras - A crossing of the planet Venus in front of the sun...
Using an arc welding shield as a lens filter, a tripod-mounted Canon SX10-is was used to collect over 10,000 images in rapid succession, creating a series of time lapse sequences of this unusual event. The 20x Zoom (560mm in 35mm equivalent) and full resolution of the camera allowed for some decent digital panning as the sun crossed the frame in each sequence. A Canon 5D Mk2 was used for some of the live video, stills, and additional time lapse sequences (not shown here) are available on the JcmdiStockFootage channel.
In a couple of frames, commercial airliners crossed in front of the sun while an image was being shot. Sunspots can also be seen in several places on the solar surface, which appear as individual and clusters of small dark areas.
