I got to see Venus in front of the sun yesterday with binoculars and welder's glass. This video is an immensely more profound view of what was happening and won't happen again for another 100+ years. Watching this video just absolutely stuns me how incomprehensibly powerful the sun is and to think how long it has been reacting like that... There is sooooo much energy exploding out from that ball of light we take for granted everyday. It is staggering and awe inspiring. Thanks NASA for the humbling and exhilarating experience.
May as well take the opportunity to promote gettng solar panels on our roofs! Here's just one of MANY companies that can help you get there for less than you expect.
