Transit of Venus in Extreme Ultraviolet

by Salman Hameed

Spectacular pictures of the transit of Venus are everywhere. Here is a fantastic short clip in extreme UV (171 angstrom). This way you can also get a glimpse of the coronal loops as well as the places where magnetic fields are currently the strongest). Enjoy!
