The brightest planet is on the far side of the Sun this month, and is impossible to see without optical aid, due to the solar glare. Its appearance will be like a tiny Full Moon, as in the third picture below. Each morning in the first week of June its angular distance from the Sun will decrease, until it passes behind the Sun (superior conjunction) on June 9. Venus will return to the evening sky In July.
Venus is always far brighter than anything else in the sky except for the Sun and Moon. Up until last month, Venus appeared as a 'Morning Star', but from next month on it will become an 'Evening Star' once again. Each of these appearances lasts about eight to nine months.
