Description
Hi Something special is happening to Venus. The brightest of all planets is hanging low in the western sky at sunset, and if you look at it with a backyard telescope, you'll see that it is a slender 4% crescent. But that's not the special part. What's special is, Venus looks like a rainbow The seeing was poor, but Venus was still bright and beautiful.
