Thanks to NASA, we have some lovely ultra high quality images of this once in our lifetime transit, unless of-course you are a vampire. Technology has come a long-long way since the previous transit 8 years back. One thing that stands out is the magnificent brilliance of our sun!
The shots were taken from SDO (Solar Dynamics Observatory) launched in 2010. It is the most advanced space craft ever designed to study the Sun. The resolution provided by SDO is 8 times better than regular HD TV!
Head over to NASA for more ultra quality images.
