venus at 7

last week, the morning sky came with moon and venus.

today it's her alone: venus, the morning star. which of course isn't a star, but a planet, reflecting the sunlight.

also, it's 2 more day to equinox.

more sky moments, "venus with moon"  included, here: sky diary

PS - and i just checked the wiki note: "Morning star" is the name given to the planet Venus when it appears in the east before sunrise (as though heralding the coming of the morning). "Phosphorus" or "Light-Bringer" (Greek Φωσφόρος Phōsphoros) is the ancient Greek mythological name for the planet. It is also named Ἑωσφόρος, Heosphoros, "Dawn-bringer".
