Venus Dancing on the Sun

It's been almost two months since the last Venus transit this century. Fortunately, I collected a huge stack of imaging data. I posted a few key images in my "Black Drop" post last month, but all along I planned to make a time lapse video; and I finally uploaded that hand assembled video. Here it is, but I recommend following the link and viewing it at the YouTube site. The JPEG artifacts of this embedded version are not as bad there. More about this video below.
