APOD: 2012 June 5 - Live: Watching for Venus to Cross the Sun
If you aren’t able to view today’s Venus transit because you’re stuck at a computer, you’re not out of luck. Astronomy Picture of the Day is live-updating an image of the Sun from SDO, which means you can watch Venus zip past starting about three hours from now. Even better:
- The image is enormous. Click through to see the full-sized one.
- It comes to you live via the Internet from SPACE.
- SDO is so awesome, its mascot is a rubber chicken. No lie.
