VIDEO: Venus Transit 2012 from Super Hi-Def NASA Camera

Miss the transit? See this ultra high-def video.

 

Did you check out the last week? We know of a few people who headed out to the Surf Club to try to see it. But the weather wasn't so great. So, if you missed it, or if you just want a better view of it, check out this video, taken by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory.

The observatory's main purpose is to examine the sun's atmosphere and the video captures images about eight times better than HDTV, according to NASA.

On June 5, it captured the across the face of the sun, an event that won't happen again until 2117. The best views in the contiguous U.S. were in the west. For those of us on the east, this might be the best view we'll get.
