5 comments on “Yes, That’s Venus

  1. I was telling my tutoring students last week that the really bright “star” they saw low in the sky that night was indeed the planet they were studying in class. That got their attention!

  2. Since Venus is so close to it’s maximum magnitude, you can actually see it during daylight. Today it will be just below and to the right of the Moon.

  3. As we were leaving work, a friend asked me if she could see Venus tonight. I told her to look over my shoulder at the moon and then look to the lower right. She was first amazed that she could easily find the moon and then she was speechless when she saw Venus in daylight. Made my day.
