STEREO animations

STEREO consists of two spacecraft that between them will make three dimensional images of the Sun and was launched last year. Back on the February Jodcast we talked to Chris Davis (MP3: 4.5 MB) of the STEREO mission about current progress. The spacecraft are not yet in position but they are on their way and producing some early results. A few weeks ago I somehow missed the news (although Tom, Phil and everyone else didn't) about the amazing video the STEREO team have released showing the Earth's Moon passing between the "behind" spacecraft and the Sun. It is just stunning. More recent news is that Ian has an animation of Comet Machholz seen by STEREO. I may be late to the party but all these animations are worth it.
