Venus moves to evening “star” status

Tonight Venus moved less than half a degree from Jupiter….

As shown above in the notch through the trees, Venus is brighter on the left and Jupiter is dimmer at Venus’ upper right.

Venus will dominate the evening sky for the rest of 2010.  I like Venus as an evening “star” better than when it’s a morning target.

Not sure why, but I do.
