“Goodbye, shiny Venus!”: online, live observation of the planet at its brightest – 23 Sept. 2018
These very days, planet Venus reaches its peak in luminosity since the beginning of the year, before leaving the evening sky. At Virtual Telescope we will say goodbye to Venus at sunset, while it sets beside the legendary monuments of Rome: join our live view online, from the comfort of your home.
After more than six months, Venus is slowly leaving the evening sky, ready to put its show early in the morning. Before doing this, the planet reaches its peak luminosity (mag. -4.56), the brightest since the beginning of the year.
It is a stunning sight at sunset, right now: seeing Venus approaching the horizon, beside the monuments of Rome is a unique experience and we want to share it with you, in real-time!
For this, we scheduled a live streaming to bring to you this stunning sight. The online, free session is scheduled for 23 Sept. 2018, starting at 17:30 UT.
