Venus at greatest elongation

About this image

Venus is at greatest elongation this evening, though unfortunately this apparition is very low in the south for northern observers. Evening apparitions of Mercury and Venus are most spectacular when they happen in the spring, but end up very low in the southern sky when they come around in the autumn.
