So what is it?

The blurry white line to the left of the big cricle is Venus in motion. The other thing is the Sun. The lie? Venus isn't really transiting the Sun, just the Sun's corona. The corona is the area surrounding the Sun that is composed of all the particles that stream out of it. The white circle is the Sun proper.

The image comes from SOHO. The orbital solar observatory. I'm gonna keep updating all day.

Yes, I'm a geek. Deal.
