Star Tours

Now you see it, now you don't. Venus has shone as the brilliant "evening star" in the west during twilight since August, but it disappears in coming weeks. Venus is moving between Earth and the sun, and it sets five minutes earlier each day. In 10 days it will set before the sky is dark. Enjoy it now.
