(June 5th, 2012) Amazing footage captured by Nasa's observatory as Venus made it's way across the sun. This won't happen again until the year 2117. Good luck getting there! Awesome footage, enjoy liveleak.
(ABC News) It was a last-time-in-a-lifetime spectacle, one that only happens when Venus, the second planet in the solar system, comes directly between Earth and the sun. Because of the complexities of orbital mechanics, there are two such alignments in a period of eight years -- the last was on June 8, 2004-- followed by a break of more than a century. If it was cloudy where you were today, you'll have to hang on until the next transit on December 10, 2117.(Click link for more info).
