2017, March 8: Venus and Mars


Brilliant Venus shines from the west this evening during twilight as seen from the Chicago area.  Venus is rapidly moving into the sun’s glare during this month.  It moves between the sun and Earth later in the month and appears in the morning sky in April.  Tonight Venus and Mars are 18 degrees apart.
