Solar transit of Atlantis and the Hubble space telescope

In my childhood during summertime I was tracking sunspots in the backyard of my dad. In that time I used a rather small telescope, protecting my eyes with darkened negatives, sketching the movement of the spots in a notebook.

Thierry Legault managed to bring back these memories by shooting these incredible pictures of the Atlantis on a repair mission of the Hubble telescope.
