Early risers will notice tomorrow morning when the Moon is located next to dazzling Venus currently shining at magnitude -4.5. Keep watching over the next two weeks as Venus will get even brighter and reaches -4.9 magnitude on the morning of 15 February.
This will occur when Venus reaches it’s greatest illuminated extent, which is the moment that the visible part of the planet’s day side appears largest as seen from Earth.
Venus should in fact be so bright that it should cause objects in dark sky conditions to cast shadows. As this article explains, the best way to see these shadows is to use your hand and a white piece of paper. Venus will remain visible in the Earth’s morning sky until mid-September when it’s orbital motion will carry it back towards the Sun.
