If you missed the transit of Venus yesterday or want to relive the planet's nearly seven hour journey across the Sun, NASA has some beautiful images and video of the event up now. The transit began at about 6PM EST, and millions watched it worldwide both live and via NASA's live stream of the event. Venus transits happen in pairs with more than a century in between — yesterday's followed the 2004 transit, with the one before that taking place in 1882. The next transit won't happen for another 105 years, but you can watch this video of NASA's compiled footage while you wait around for the next one.
