Something I just learned today:

Predating Muybridge's work by 4 years, the first moving picture was a series of images of a solar transit by Venus in 1874, credited to Pierre Jules C├ęsar Janssen and produced using a camera specially built for the purpose, called a "photographic revolver."

That's actually pretty good. Look at the size of the disc!
