The ISS sweeps up past the planet Venus!

4203 views Big Poppa Ross January 21, 2020 New Hamburg, ON Date shot: January 21, 2020

Just as the bright planet Venus was setting in the west, the ISS was rising and heading to a point overhead. A beautiful sight on a cold winter's night! Venus is currently in the constellation Aquarius, and will continue to climb slightly higher each night until it reaches a maximum height in late March, and then will gradually descend but will still be gaining in brightness. In fact, in late April, it will be at magnitude -4.7 and should be visible in the daytime with the naked eye if you know exactly where to look. So ... keep looking UP!
