Of Course You Missed It: Venus Flies Across the Sun


Venus has been chillin’ near us a lot in 2012, and yesterday we witnessed a celestial event that won’t happen again for a million years. Or a hundred. Either way, it was kind of a big deal.

Venus crossed in front of the surface of the sun, and while most probably didn’t know about it to see it, those that did probably either blinded themselves or had a rather crappy view. Thankfully, that’s why we have NASA.

They set up their own cameras, which is how we have this super HD version of the planet making its way across the sun in a clip that practically looks CGI. But it isn’t. To see an entire planet look so tiny like that, it’s breathtaking.

Anyway, back to Pokemon and stuff now…
