Venus Transit is Over, Site is Online

The Venus Transit ended early last Wednesday morning. Here is an image of Venus exiting the solar corona in AIA 193. Many thanks to the people who made the data display possible, especially to our Data Meister Phil Scherrer at Stanford University.
The website is a permanent source of images of the 2012 transit of Venus. Although it was briefly offline this weekend, we have re-enabled the website and you can once again look at the images and movies.
Next goal is a posting about how the diffraction pattern of AIA created the ghosts in the EUV images during the transit.
