Venus Transit

Filed under: Odds 'n ends — totallygroovygirlfriday @ 10:22 am

groovygirl watched the Venus Transit yesterday. If you missed it, here is a link to photos. (Different colors are from infrared telescopes and different filters used to observe the event.) On the first photo, look at the bottom of the sun at around 6:00, there is a little bump, that is a solar storm/flare.

More images here. Very cool montage of video/photos from NASA here.

It happens about every 100 years or so. Just another example of a cycle 🙂
