Venus, the Evening Star for Skywatch Friday


Last weekend we enjoyed watching our two little grandsons who were very excited when their Grampy David pointed out Venus, the Evening Star to them.They had a good view of it standing on their front doorstep.And better yet their DaDa was able to take some very good pictures of the planet. These two little guys[aged 3 and 5] know all about the planets and the Solar System. They're probably standing on their step right now watching it tonight!And I was right! Here are my two little grandsons tonight watching Venus from their home in the belle province de Quebec." There it is, its Venus"
Thanks to guest photographer Davis for the great pictures"!Merci Davis!"
Happy Skywatch Friday to all. My appreciative thanks to Sandy, Klaus, Ivar, Wren and Fishing Guyand Louise for hosting Sky Watch Friday

It was rather interesting for me to read the blog. Thanx for it. I like such topics and everything connected to this matter. I would like to read a bit more soon.

Love the first photo. It's almost like a painting.

FYI, your link had an error in it, and I couldn't get here from the SWF site. I fixed it, but please be so kind to check before you hit "enter" so people can get where they want to go and you can get your visitors!

A beautiful picture of the star - and an even lovelier and touching one of your grandsons. That one is definitely a keeper!

We are avid night sky watchers. My husband has three telescopes to keep him busy. For my Sky Watch I was able to capture some sunrise colour with our first snow up at the cabin. I invite you to come see. - Margy

Very nice and how great that they already are excited about watching the skies. Little "skywachers" in the making :-)

Merry Christmas!
I love that your children are learning Astronomy!
In Nov. 2009, the evening star is Jupiter...
Venus has, after being the Morning Star, just disappeared behind the sun in its superior conjunction and will become the Evening Star in the spring.
Venus will cross in front of the sun on 6/6/2012 in it's inferior conjunction. Mayans have interesting legends about Venus...and Hollywood makes some pretty wild movies, too. :D
