It was indeed a worth waiting celestial event as Tuesday afternoon witnesses sky watchers across Southern California gathering to view how Venus transit. It was reported that many of them managed to see a tiny black dot moving across the solar disk with filtered telescopes.
"It's like watching grass grow. But if you were told that grass only grows every 100 years, you'd probably want to watch it”, said Don Nicholson, one of the observers, while claiming that the Venus' 6-hour, 40-minute progression was worth watching. It is known that such event last time occurred in the year 2004 and next time, it will happen in 2117 and 2125.
There were some 150 amateur astronomers present to see the same. It is believed that since so many years , researchers have been observing such events and Tuesday's transit was reported to be the seventh to be observed till now.
Enthusiasm of people seeing the event was worth applauding. Recalling the time when last such event occurred, Ron Kunkel, Director of the astronomical society, claimed that this experience is worth saving in memories.
With so much of glare hooked to the event, it would be worth seeing what all could be deduced from the same in the time to come.
