Neat musical video of Venus transit

As I mentioned recently, I missed the Venus transit due to the unhelpful cloud cover in Cincinnati, but there are no clouds in space! (Yes, there are nebulae and such, don’t be picky…) NASA has compiled a nice video from satellite images of the Venus transit taken through different filters and at different wavelengths. And it’s accompanied by trailer music, my favorite!

For those who just can’t get enough of seeing a planet pass in front of the sun, here it is:

    Nice to see we subscribe to or else go looking for the same video series – I saw this earlier this morning.

    Here is another one (of many that NASA puts out) worth viewing – not of Venus, but “the evolution of the Moon” as based on observations by the LRO (Lunar Reconaissance Orbiter) and whatever framework is used to interpret the time scale.

  3. That was semi-ridiculous [grin]. 3 minutes of the same shot, recorded at least 7 different ways, with at least 5 different camera pans. You weren’t kidding about the “for those that can’t get enough” …

    Youtube seems to be the way to do it rather than that welders helmet, eh?

  4. What a great video! I knew there was something about this blog I liked. We in the Northeast LCG have our own website and I’m going to try to post a link to the video there. Our site also links to our SmugMug hosted photo galleries. One of which is titled, “His Handiwork – Exposed” and features a few decent Transit of Venus photos.
    The link to the website is Seek out the June 6 post of the transit and click to see our photos. It’s not set to music, but it is set to Scripture.
