NJIT Scientists Host Public Viewing of Historic Transit of Venus

Astronomers from NJIT and the Newark Museum’s Dreyfuss Planetarium provided sunscopes and commentary for the more than 200 people who gathered at the Eagle Rock Reservation in West Orange at sunrise on June 8, 2004 to view the transit of the planet Venus across the sun. “A lot of people told us how grateful they were that we were there to share our equipment and expertise with them,” said Dale Gary, Ph.D., professor of physics at NJIT.
