Ultra-high definition view of 2012 Venus Transit

(3:07) The 2012 Venus Transit is when Venus predictably passes between us and the sun (5/6 June 2012), and shows as a dark spot crossing the sun over a period of 6 hours 40 minutes. These images are from the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), an advanced spacecraft designed to study the sun. SDO provides images with resolution 8x better than HD TV and returns more than a terabyte of data each day.
