Venus shines high in the western sky after sunset

Post  Magic on 6/13/2015, 10:11 pm

Do you easterners get a good look at Venus just after dark in the western sky?

It is hard for me to see since I have a ridge and olf fir trees blocking my view unless I look at 10:00

Only reason I saw it is I was out watching the ISS flying over my place coming out of the west so it looked like Venus was following it.

It looks like a ball of fire as it sets in the west.

Venus and Jupiter (pretty sure) have been bright in the sky the past week or so it seems... clap

We're all looking at the same sky, Cravn… I've been watching them too. But some of those nights, wow!
