Bora Bora Transit Day

Looking through the Hydrogen Alpha - Paul Gauguin cruise ship in background

Yes you can see a little dot on the Sun

After being educated by Virginia (ship's translator) some local kids look at Venus cross the Sun

Solar Viewers are great fun when something is going on with the Sun

Local craft vendor takes a peek

Our observing station on the tender pier in Bora Bora
Photographs sent in by Roger Langton, a passenger on the Paul Gauguin Transit of Venus cruise. While our observation platform may look isolated, it isn't and we had a constant stream of locals stopping by for a look at the Sun and the Transit of Venus.
