Venus blazes in our sky this season as our evening star. On June 20, 2010, Venus passed through the Beehive star cluster, as seen in this image. A similar event will happen on April 2 and 3 when Venus passes through the Pleiades, or “Seven Sisters,” star cluster.

Venus, the lovely evening star, is dominating our evening sky right now. She is the first “star” that you’ll see pop out of the evening twilight, so feel free to make a wish on her.
