Venus This Evening, November 19, 2013


DSC00179

Brilliant Venus shines in the south-southwest this evening during twilight. (Click the image to see it larger.)  It is about three weeks past its largest apparent separation from the sun during this evening appearance. It continues to grow in brightness for the next few weeks.  The only two celestial sights that are regularly brighter than Venus are the sun and the moon.
