An extreme ultraviolet picture of the sun from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory shows the planet Venus in transit, as well as dramatic swirls of solar activity.
Venus can be seen at top right, beginning to cross the face of the sun, in a picture of the transit taken from Manhattan's West Side.
This is an exciting event! The next time Venus will pass in front of the sun will be in 2117. I will be searching the web for more great pictures and video feed!
