“Over 5,000 people might have come and gone after seeing the celestial event here since morning. We made arrangements for the people to view the event thorough different telescopes,” S. Soundarajaperumal, joint director, Birla Planetarium told.
Special arrangements were made for the people to watch the transit of Venus as watching it with naked eyes is injurious.
“While the school students enjoyed watching the event, Madras University students are doing their research,” Soundarajaperumal said.
People were also keen in viewing the visible sun spots.
The next Venus transit is expected to happen after 117 years.
