Venus Transit from HD Satellite Footage

The transit of Venus across the sun is the rarest predictable event in astronomy. On June 5, 2012 from approximately 6-12pm Eastern Daylight Time, the last transit until the year 2117 took place. The Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) captured the entire transit in many wavelengths of light and greater-than-HD resolution.
