    Cool Venus by Pleiades - Evening April 3

    Venus this evening will be passing just south of the principal Pleiades stars. It will actually pass among some of the cluster's telescopic members. A conjunction occurs every year, but is particularly close every eight years as is the case this year. In the coming eight-year cycles, Venus will pass among the cluster's principal stars.

    Photos and descriptions of the conjunction would be welcome additions to this thread.
