Miss Out on Venus Passing In Front of the Sun? We Have the Video!
I totally spaced on the entire Venus passing in front of the sun thing. I heard you have to make some special viewer and it just sounded like too much work, and I wouldn’t technically be “seeing” it at all really. So I wait till today to get a few of this phenomenon known as the Venus Transit. I think the video is much better, it’s beautiful! I hear it looked great here in Lufkin and Nacogdoches through their viewer thingys.
On June 5 2012, SDO collected images of the rarest predictable solar event–the transit of Venus across the face of the sun. This event happens in pairs eight years apart that are separated from each other by 105 or 121 years. The last transit was in 2004 and the next will not happen until 2117. (NASA via You Tube)
