It's always nice to see stories using SDO images on the web. It was pretty cloudy on the East Coast of the United States on Monday and a cloud-free satellite feed is a great backup. Here are a few examples where SDO images were used to share the Mercury transit to the world.
- http://www.nasa.gov/topics/solarsystem/features/eclipse/index.html (Of course!) Lots of stills and movies from SDO, including the composite image at the top of this post.
- http://www.slate.com/blogs/bad_astronomy/2016/05/10/nasa_solar_dynamics_observatory_animations_of_the_mercury_transit.html (great headline on the story!)
