For the rest of 2015, the planet Venus will be bright in the evening sky, and easily spotted without binoculars or telescope.

Clouds and (Spring dust storms) permitting, you can see Venus now with your unaided eye, just after sunset in the Southwestern sky. The planet will dazzle viewers with it's brilliance even deep into the summer months.

In late June and early July, Venus will be in conjunction with Jupiter, so the two will be close together in the evening sky.

Venus will be at it's brightest for 2015 on July 10th.
