Venus This Morning, January 23, 2014


DSC00582

Venus is the bright “star” in the southeast this morning. (Click the image to see it larger.) Just 12 days after moving between Earth and the sun (inferior conjunction), Venus is now rising about 90 minutes before the sun and is visible in the early morning sky for most of 2014.

Through binoculars, Venus appears as a tiny crescent, resembling a miniature moon, with the day side tilted toward the sun.
