Venus, December 25, 2014


After many cloudy days and nights, the sky broke this evening during twilight.  In the image above, Venus — now making an appearance as an Evening Star — appears low in the southwestern sky.  (Click the image to see it larger.) Tonight it sets about 65 minutes after sunset.  Each evening it sets about one minute later than the previous evening.  By the end of next month, it sets nearly 2 hours after the sun, appearing in a dark sky.
