If you have looked at data from the SOHO LASCO C3 coronagraph over the last week or so you may have noticed the very bright object in the field-of-view. You might even think it looks like a UFO. You are not alone. People often mistake objects like this for flying saucers but it is in fact planet. It is Venus! On August 14, 2019 – Venus will reach superior conjunction, as it swings behind the sun in Earth’s sky. Superior conjunction for Venus marks the time of its transition from the morning to evening sky. The planet becomes visible once again from around mid September 2019, when it is seen from Equatorial latitudes as an 'Evening Star' in the Western sky shortly after sunset. This heralds the start of the 2019-20 evening apparition of Venus, which will last through to May 2020.
