Crash Course Astronomy: Venus

Contributed by

There but for the grace of physics goes us: Venus, second rock from the Sun, could be said to be Earth’s twin … but it’s the evil one.

Find out why on this week’s episode of Crash Course Astronomy!

I love the fact that you can learn all about Venus in this week’s episode, and then go outside after sunset and see it for yourself, shining brilliantly in the west. It’ll be close and bright for the next few months, actually, so you’ll have plenty of chances to see it. And in July it’ll start to show its crescent phase even in binoculars. That’s really something, and I hope y’all go out and take a look.
