Mumbai: Bollywood’s legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan is not only a celebrated actor but also a space enthusiast. On March 29th, the superstar took to social media to share a rare and beautiful sight of the parade of five planets in the sky.
The planets included Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Uranus, all aligned in a straight line. The 45-second clip that Mr. Bachchan posted on his Instagram account has since left many internet users in awe.
In the video, Big B also offered a glimpse of the moon. He captioned the post saying, “What A Beautiful Sight…! 5 Planets Aligned Together Today… Beautiful And Rare… Hope You Witnessed It too.” His post received thousands of likes and comments, with many fans expressing their excitement and gratitude for sharing this extraordinary event.
However, some viewers had different opinions about the event. According to them, the first magnification with 5 bright spots in the sky were not individual planets as they appeared. They were, in fact, Jupiter and its Galilean moons. Also, the position of Jupiter being so near to the moon in the sky was not something that was witnessed today.
On the other hand, the second magnification with Jupiter in focus near the horizon was the actual event that happened today. Along with Jupiter, Mercury was visible near it, and moving up the horizon came the planets Uranus, Venus and Mars. Despite this difference in perspective, Bachchan’s post still managed to leave a lasting impression on viewers.
This rare astronomical event of five planets in alignment is a remarkable sight that is not seen every day. The alignment is due to the positions of the planets relative to Earth’s orbit around the sun. This event highlights the beauty and majesty of the universe, and how even the most celebrated celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan can find wonder and awe in it.
The parade of five planets in alignment that occurred on March 29th was indeed a rare and beautiful sight. Amitabh Bachchan’s post on Instagram drew attention to this event and created a buzz among space enthusiasts and social media users alike. Even with differing opinions about the event, the beauty and wonder of the universe cannot be denied. It is heartwarming to see celebrities like Bachchan sharing these moments with their fans and inspiring a sense of awe and wonder in them.
