Evening Star

Venus, goddess of love and beauty
Shining brightly in the evening sky
Masquerade to the human eye

Venus is the second planet from the Sun, orbiting it every 224.7 Earth days. The planet is named after Venus, the Roman goddess of love and beauty. After the Moon, it is the brightest natural object in the night sky, reaching an apparent magnitude of −4.6, bright enough to cast shadows. Because Venus is an inferior planet from Earth, it never appears to venture far from the Sun: its elongation reaches a maximum of 47.8°. Venus reaches its maximum brightness shortly before sunrise or shortly after sunset, for which reason it has been known as the Morning Star or Evening Star.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  1. As it is between us and the sun, we never see it other than sideways on. A side-view star?

    • I love to learn things from our blogs, like your blog on geese. I found that very interesting. We had a rerun recently on TV of the movie called ‘Fly Away’, I think. About the geese learning to follow an aeroplane. I’ve seen it quite a few times and still enjoy it.
