Because you missed it, here are several shots from NASA's Solar Dynamics Laboratory telescope highlighting Venus' transit of the sun yesterday afternoon/evening. "Where were you when Venus transited the sun in 2012?" people will ask in the future. And how -- how will you respond? Lie and say you saw it? That you really wanted to but couldn't because it was raining? Or that you were going to but had to fight off a bunch of ninjas? I think I'm gonna say the ninja thing. Except replace ninjas with Batman villains. Oh, and it was all for a woman's honor. So yeah, that's what I was doing. What were you doing?
Hit the jump for a couple more including a worthwhile super-closeup.
Thanks to Gnome_Miner, who didn't get to see the transit because he was underground working the mine all day. Well hopefully you managed to sneak some diamonds out in your butthole to make up for it.
