2020, April 1: Venus and Pleiades


2020, April 1: Venus is 1.8° to the lower right of the Pleiades star cluster.

 

This evening, Venus is 1.8° to the lower right of the Pleiades star cluster.

Use a binocular to highlight the view of the cluster and the nearby checkmark-shaped Hyades, especially with a bright moon in the sky.  With the yellow-orange star Aldebaran, the Hyades cluster makes a V-shape, although the Aldebaran is not part of the cluster.
