THE SALFORD SIDE STREET WHERE MODERN ASTRONOMY WAS BORN: HOW THE TRANSIT WAS FIRST SEEN IN 1639

Ford Madox Brown's 'Crabtree watching the Transit of Venus in 1639'
shows how Crabtree captured the transit-- a groundbreaking
achievement for the time

The first observation of the Transit of Venus-- where the planet passes directly between the sun and the Earth-- was made by Salford stargazer William Crabtree in 1639.

The former Manchester Grammar School pupil's observation-- lauded by some as the birthplace f modern astronomy-- was made with a helioscope from his bedroom window and proved that planets orbit the sun and not the Earth.

To mark Crabtree's legacy, the room where he made the discovery was transformed to how it would have been in his time, using furnishings from Ordsall Hall.

Organisers linked up with NASA for the special event, which involved actors in period dress recreating Crabtree's moment of discovery.

Footage from the house at Lower Broughton Road-- which retains Tudor features from his day-- was beamed to millions of internet users from NASA's site.

Meanwhile, a giant projector on the side of the house was set up to screen images of the Transit from NASA's telescope in Hawaii, and guests at the event were able to take part in a question and answer session with the American space agency's experts.
