While gazing at a mesmerizing sunset on the horizon, you’ll be quick to notice a bright white light shining in the sky above. Besides the moon, this is the brightest light in the night sky. It looks like a star, but it’s not. It’s the planet Venus.
“In the morning, you can see Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars. In the Southern Hemisphere, catch Mercury before sunrise,” according to EarthSky, while Venus is the brightest planet seen in the Northern Hemisphere.
Named after the Roman goddess of love, Venus will be visible in the sky until May. Enjoy it while it lasts throughout April because the “Evening Star” won’t be visible again until the year 2028, reports Forbes.
