An Amazing Celestial Event Is Happening At The End Of The Month And It Will Be Visible From Idaho

Next to the sun and the moon, Venus is the third brightest object in the night sky. For this reason, it’s a beloved planet to seek out among both seasoned and beginning astronomy enthusiasts. If the prospect of catching Venus at its brightest appeals to you then you’ll want to be sure to set yourself a reminder in a few day’s time. The fiery planet Venus will appear extra luminous as the end of the month, and it won’t appear any brighter for the rest of the year. Best of all, you won’t need any special equipment to spot this glowing orb. Simply tilt your head back and look up at the night sky!
