People have been noticing right from home, how certain luminaries have become more pronounced. Walk out your front door and you never know what you’ll see. Just after sunset if you take a visual sweep of the neighborhood, you’ll see the usual houses, parked cars and scenery but if you look up slightly to see that some of the planets have become brighter. This is particularly true of Venus which now can be seen in a crescent phase because it’s on a line between us and the sun creating the right angle and is also closer. September 2018 this one this effect will peak.
