Brilliant Venus sparkles in the south-southwestern sky after sunset this evening. (Click the image to see it larger.)  Venus continues to grow in brightness through early December.  It is now setting about 2 hours, 30 minutes after the sun.  After its latest setting time in early December, Venus rapidly closes in on the sun as it passes between Earth and the sun (inferior conjunction) on January 11, 2014.
