I heard this morning on VPR that Venus will be visible again tonight (another sign that the seasons are changing!) until about the end of the summer and when I looked up “planet Venus” I found that it was named by ancient astronomers for the Roman goddess and represents Love & Beauty.  Since I deal in the business of Love & Beauty I thought it was apropos to mention it here!  You can often see Venus first thing in the morning even after the sun rises and it’s the brightest planet you’ll see in the evening, too. According to NASA it is the brightest planet or star that you can see from planet Earth.  So look up in the sky tonight and you just may see the closest planet besides Mercury.  Happy gazing…
