Amazing NASA photos of the Venus transit

Photos from the transit of Venus between the Sun and the Earth

The transit of Venus has provided an amazing opportunity for images as it passes between the Earth and the Sun. NASA has taken some stunning images of the second planet from the Sun during the transit. There won't be another sight like this one until 2117, as it only happens every 105 or 121 years.

This image is of Venus approaching the Sun and was captured by the satellite of NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory.
