Planet Venus – ‘A Lighthouse as Darkness Falls’



Venus has been very easy to spot in the clear evening skies of late, easy enough for my little one to spot every evening (and Jupiter which has been overhead but West). Catch it whilst you can.

Brilliant Venus in west dusk until mid-evening. Venus – brightest planet and third-brightest object in the sky after the sun and moon – climbs higher up at dusk, and stays out later after dark, than it did in March 2015.

  1. people with powerful telescopes cannot see clear the surface of Venus, BUT they can see the surface on Mars = therefore: they blame the CO2 in Venus atmosphere; that’s very deceiving.

    Because of the position of Mars in relation to the sun / earth – Mars sunny side is exposed to here (same as when looking at full moon) BUT: when looking at Venus, you see the side of Venus that is night (same as looking at new moon – not clear to see the surface) so: stop blaming the CO2 about everything!!!
