Venus has been hiding in bright twilight since passing behind the sun. Southern hemisphere observers have been seeing the planet. Now this part of the solar system is easier to see for observers in the mid-northern latitudes.

To see it find a clear southwest horizon, about 30 minutes after sunset. The planet is low in the sky.  Each night it sets later.  Jupiter and Saturn are higher in the south-southwest.  Venus passes Jupiter next month and Saturn in December.
