Description

I was up early this morning to get my setup ready for Mercury's transit of the Sun on November 11th. While I was waiting for the clouds to clear in order to start experimenting with exposure times and settings I thought I might try out my camera's video function. I thought the clouds moving over the sun looked pretty interesting so I thought I'd share :) I think it kind of looks spooky...

I really hope there are less clouds on the 11th!
