NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory — SDO — has been watching the Sun non-stop for over 10 years! Special equipment takes a picture of the sun every second.

Watch below to see when Venus crossed the sun on June 5, 2012. This is a rare event that won't happen again until the year 2117!

It took about 6 hours for Venus to pass in front of the sun.
