A Bit of Winter Sun

On the off chance that winter has been too long and you haven’t seen the Sun in a while, rest assured: it’s been busy! I just came across this fantastic compilation of greatest hits from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, created by Goddard Space Flight Center. The whole thing is worth watching, but just past the 2:20 mark, you can watch the transit of Venus in multiple bands of UV light– a reminder of how our star affects us here on Earth.
