As is often the case Venus, given that it is between us and the Sun, tends to be low on the horizon and sets below the horizon quite early. So the best time to see it is with 90 minutes of sunset, in the soutwestern quadrant of the sky. Also look for Saturn and the always orange Mars.

That Bright ‘Star’ Above The Moon Tonight, Over New Hampshire, Is Jupiter. It Was Alongside Yesterday. Looks Like Venus, But It Is Not.

Yes, earlier in the month it was Venus that was close to the Moon.

Now it is Jupiter, because they all move about — nothing stays still up there.

Venus is still around and visible in the Southwest sky, very close to the horizon, but setting BELOW the horizon by 7:30 pm. 5:30 pm, directly SW, is a good time to see Venus.

Enjoy Jupiter. It was spectacular last night — beautiful opposite conjunction with the full Moon. Today it will be above the Moon. While you are at it take a gander at Orion and soak in its grandeur.
