A new camera recently installed at the Uccle Solar Equatorial Table spotted the Moon in front of the Sun at 13:13. The picture was taken in normal visible (white) light, to study the photosphere of the sun. Note the complete lack of sunspots due to solar minimum.
Another new camera recently installed at the Uccle Solar Equatorial Table also spotted the Moon in front of the Sun but at 11:11. This picture was taken with an H-alpha.filter to study the chromosphere of the sun.
