Abstract: In this paper we show how the quantitative forms of Kronecker's theorem in Diophantine approximations can be applied to investigate view-obstruction problems. In particular we answer a question in [Yong-Gao Chen, *On a conjecture in Diophantine approximation*, III, J. Number Theory **39** (1991), 91-103].
