    Venus transit between Earth and Sun today. Rare event. Watch it live here >>

    At this moment Venus is just beginning its transit across the Sun, directly between the Earth and the Sun. This will take place over the next 6 hours or so. This rare event, known as a transit of Venus, takes place only once every century or so, usually in pairs spaced eight years apart. The next one won't happen until Dec. 11, 2117.

    You can watch on this live stream. Here >> http://www.cnn.com/video/?/video/cvp...ive/cvpstream1

    Venus is the large black dot moving across the sun.

    I'll miss Venus. Been watching it closely for over a year now. Has been really spectacular. So bright and brilliant in the early evening sky. Really spectacular. Has put on quite a show the past 18 months or so. Now has slipped below the horizon out of sight.


    I grabbed this screenshot just now from that live cam as Venus nears the end of its transit between the Earth and Sun...

    Stunning videos of yesterday's event, as filmed from the SDO spacecraft...

    Recommended full screen in HD...


    Info about this film...

    Launched on Feb. 11, 2010, the Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, is the most advanced spacecraft ever designed to study the sun.

    On June 5 2012, SDO collected images of the rarest predictable solar event--the transit of Venus across the face of the sun
    . This event happens in pairs eight years apart that are separated from each other by 105 or 121 years. The last transit was in 2004 and the next will not happen until 2117.

    The videos and images displayed here are constructed from several wavelengths of extreme ultraviolet light and a portion of the visible spectrum. The red colored sun is the 304 angstrom ultraviolet, the golden colored sun is 171 angstrom, the magenta sun is 1700 angstrom, and the orange sun is filtered visible light. 304 and 171 show the atmosphere of the sun, which does not appear in the visible part of the spectrum.
