Awesome Video of the Moon Crossing the Sun

The Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO)

is designed to help us understand the Sun’s influence on Earth and Near-Earth space by studying the solar atmosphere on small scales of space and time and in many wavelengths simultaneously.

 But also (and perhaps more importantly), it takes some pretty sweet pictures and videos.

 Take this one which I saw posted on Bad Astronomy. It shows the moon moving between the SDO and the Sun, making the moon clearly visible as it crosses the disc of the Sun.

 Cooooooooooooool!
