With Venus reaching its brightest point, I’m going to set you all a little challenge: take some photos. Grab your digital camera (with or without a telescope) and snap a picture. Since Venus is just a really bright star in the sky, I’d like to see some context in the picture. Maybe show some of your local horizon, or a nice sunset – let’s see Venus from where you live. Send in your pictures and I’ll publish a bunch. Tell me your name, location, and anything interesting you did to capture your image (or an interesting story about how you organized your family to get outdoors).
Get outside, enjoy the sky!
