Shuttle Atlantis - June 8th 2009, 06:22 AM

NASA - Transiting the Sun

I have an insiders view into this story because my mom works with NASA.

The guy that took the picture came to NASA and said that he knew how to get this shot, but he didn't have the equipment. NASA gave him the "solar-filtered Takahashi 5-inch refracting telescope and a Canon 5D Mark II digital camera" that he needed in return for the photos. I just thought that this was a really fantastic shot, and that some of you guys would really appreciate how this is!

That is an awesome shot. Did the guy get to keep the equipment?
