    Cool Watch Out for UFO! Oops, I mean Venus as Morning Star

    Get ready for hysterical UFO sighting reports! Venus has commenced its apparition as the brilliant Morning Star in the eastern sky before sunrise following its inferior conjunction between Earth and Sun on 2018 OCT 26.

    Iíve created a more detailed article about this apparition, and several graphics related to the motions of Venus, including one illustrating its position in the predawn evening eastern sky throughout the entire apparition. They can be seen by visiting

    Photos and descriptions of Venus during this apparition would be welcome additions to this thread.

    I am never hysterical when I report Venus as a UFO.
    There is something fascinating about science. One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact.

    Beautiful! The apparent stall in motion from christmas to mid january should provide numerous opportunities for near perfect viewing conditions where I live. Assuming a nice and cold early winter that is.
