Venus is reentering our western sky as the brilliant evening star. For my graphics and detailed description of its 2013 evening apparition, please visit my Venus webpage: www.CurtRenz.com/venus

Photos and descriptions of Venus would be welcome additions to this thread.

Glad you're appreciative, Robert. Venus is getting higher at dusk and should be seen near the New Moon this evening.

That's a great shot, Jay! Foreground objects like clouds always improve the presentation.

yes that's true centaur and even observing in daylite sometimes wisp of clouds steadys the image an sharpens the viewing.

I captured this image at 0330 UTC from 40° 43'N and 115° 34' W
Two more days 'til the grand conjunction. Hope the clouds clear up.
