MAY 27 - Saying Goodbye to Venus

For the first half of this year Venus has shown brightly in the west as our evening star. In just a few days, on June 3rd, Venus will slide between the Earth and Sun and enter the morning sky. This means this weekend will be our last chance to see Venus in the evening sky.

Depending on weather and your local horizon take the Venus challenge. What is the last day you're able to see it?

Venus will return to the evening sky next April.
