Venus!

I remembered to mention it in some classes today, but not all of them ... Venus is in the sky near the crescent moon! And she's so bright! It looks like just another star that's shining really bright, but it is in fact a planet! Mars is out there, too, but it's not as bright as Venus is and harder to see.


If you're having trouble finding it (or any planet/constellation for that matter), you can download the free app Sky Map from the iTunes or Google Play store.

Sky View is another good one you can use that is also free.You can download them from the iTunes or Google Play store, as well.




Have fun looking at the night sky!
