Video of the Day

The Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) is the most advanced spacecraft ever designed to study the sun.  Since being launched by NASA in 2010, it has steadily examined the sun’s atmosphere and magnetic field.  On June 5, 2012, the SDO gathered images of one of the rarest celestial events: the “Transit of Venus.”  This video is a compilation of those extraordinary images.
