Venus was just brilliant tonight. I can't remember the last time I saw Venus so bright.

Yeah super moon and venus are alright I guess, but neither holds a torch to SUPER URANUS.

I thought Venus has been very bright the last couple of nights too. What is the star that looks so close to it?

It was Alnath also known as Beta Tauri, not Uranus.

Uranus is not visible until 5am right now. Next few months is will rise much higher in the sky.

how about this.....venus has only 30 days to travel till it transits the sun....so it will travel really fast against the star background to get there on time.....I don't see how it will get htere.....it has to go 40 degrees or more......

Can't wait for that, just hoping it will be a cloudless sky over here. Last time around, photographing Venus in front of the sun was less than spectacular. Hope to take better pictures this time round.

Scientists are planning to use NASA's Hubble Space Telescope to observe next month's historic transit of Venus across the sun's face.

But there's a twist. Researchers can't point Hubble anywhere near the sun, because our star's bright light could damage the telescope's super-sensitive instruments. So Hubble will watch the June 5-6 Venus transit by using the moon as a mirror.

What? lol. This is awesome. Can't wait for pictures this year!

Come on June!
