Lunar transit as seen from STEREO satellite

I was catching up on old APOD photos when I came across this amazing movie of the recent lunar transit as seen from the STEREO satellite.

It's an amazing view of the two most familiar objects in our sky: the moon passing in front of the sun. I find this sort of view of the sun just captivating. Not the perfect disc envisioned by our ancesestors, our our mother star Sol is nonetheless beautiful in its own way.
