      The term usually refers to Venus, although any bright planet — Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter or Saturn — can be called an Evening or Morning Star.

        Hi Jeffrey,

        Thanks for the reply. Then please tell how to know to when these 5 will be morning or evening stars?
        Can it be explained using their geocentric longitudes ?
        If yes then please…?

        Thanks and Regards.
