NASA Venus Transit 2012 Observing Challenge Live Video Stream



NASA's SDO Satellite Captures First Image of the Venus Transit

NASA image captured June 5, 2012.

On June 5-6 2012, SDO is collecting images of one of the rarest predictable solar events: 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.

Now with all of that said. What a great shot this is of Venus. We won't see this happen again. The next time that this will happen will be 2117. About 3 generations from now.
