VIDEO: Venus Transit 2012 from Super Hi-Def NASA Camera
Miss the transit? See this ultra high-def video of it
Clouds prevented most folks in the Philadelphia suburbs from seeing the Transit of Venus on Tuesday.
If you missed 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 transit of Venus 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.
