what's that bright star...



If you are an early riser you might look up into the sky and wonder what that bright thing that looks like a star is? Well, it is actually the planet, Venus. Venus reached maximum brightness this morning, but no worries it will be easy to spot over the week ahead. As a matter a fact, it is so bright this time of year that you will be able to see it during the day!

If you want to see it, all you have to do is look east in the same direction as where the sun will rise.

Here is the link to one of my favorite star gazing sites. It covers what's going on over the week ahead. Sky and Telescope

Happy planet gazing!
