chill's Journal: The Transit of Venus in HD 1

Journal by chill

In case you missed it, and don't want to wait a bit more than a century to see the next one, NASA took some pictures of the recent transit of Venus across the Sun.

Using the Solar Dynamics Observatory, launched in 2010, NASA captured multiple-spectral video and has put together a fantastic montage.

YouTube has a quickie version for the impatient, but if you want to see the really beautiful stuff, check out NASA's Goddard Multimedia site. The videos go up to 1280x720, 59.94 fps and clock in at up to 2 Gb in file size. There are also high definition stills galore.

The videos are all in the public domain. Share and enjoy.
