Scent of a Burning Woman - Check out this ultra-hidef video of Venus’ crossing in front of our Sun recently. Captured by Solar Dynamics Observatory (SOD) spacecraft launched in 2011, the amazing images really drive home the point just how big our star is!
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.
