Transit of the Sun

Too bad about the ending of the Space Shuttle program.

But on the way back to earth, the Shuttle made a transit of the Sun which was caught on film.  You can see the images at spaceweather.com.

Small versions.. but get the big ones over there.

I believe there is going to the second of two transits of Mercury Venus pretty soon.  No?
