Royal Vauxhall pre-flight consultation Featured Charles Green Print

Royal Vauxhall pre-flight consultation

Royal Vauxhall pre-flight consultation. Historical artwork depicting a meeting held prior to the flight of the Royal Vauxhall in 1836. The balloon flight, which set a record for distance covered in a balloon, departed from Vauxhall, London on 7th November and arrived in Weilburg, Germany, 18 hours later. The balloon is at upper left. The men depicted are, from left to right: Walter Prideaux, John Hollins, William James. Around the table are: Robert Hollond, Charles Green, and Thomas Monck Mason. Hollond, Green and Mason formed the Nassau Party who made the journey. Original painting by J. Hollins after an engraving by J. H. Robinson. Published in 1843


Transit of Venus, historical artwork Featured Charles Green Print

Transit of Venus, historical artwork

Transit of Venus, historical artwork. These drawings of the transit of Venus across the Sun were produced by Captain James Cook (1728-1779) and Charles Green (1735-1771). Cook and Green both travelled to Tahiti to view the 1769 transit. When Venus passes directly between the Earth and the Sun, it is seen as a small disc that obscures part of the Sun. This phenomenon is rare, as it occurs in pairs that are spaced by eight years and each pair then has over 100 years between them. Only seven Venus transits have occurred since the invention of the telescope (in 1631, 1639, 1761, 1769, 1874, 1882 and 2004). The next 21st century transit is on 6th June 2012. Engraving from Philosophical Transactions volume 61 (1772)
