Venus Appears in the Dawn

This week Venus will appear in the dawn sky. Today the planet will be over 10° from the Sun at dawn. This will increase over a degree each day as Venus climbs higher into the dawn sky. Maximum elongation will occur on August 14th.

A few nice conjunctions will occur with both Jupiter and the Moon over the coming weeks. Stay tuned to Darker View for postings that will keep you up to date.
