Watch Venus transit the Sun

In this spectacular time-lapse video you can watch Venus transit the Sun.
This Venus transit as seen in the 171 wavelength is a 39 second time compressed video which took Venus 7 hours to do in real time. The brightest spots seen here are locations where the magnetic field near the surface is exceptionally strong. Keep a lookout for some spectacular coronal loops too.
