Venus has ended its recent apparition as an evening star and will soon be popping up into the eastern sky as the brilliant morning star following its inferior conjunction between the Earth and Sun on 2015 AUG 15. Venus is far and away the brightest celestial object other than the Sun and Moon, and will likely again inspire numerous 911 UFO reports when it suddenly reappears in the predawn sky.

I’ve created a more detailed article and several graphics related to the motions of Venus, including one illustrating its position in the eastern sky throughout the entire current morning apparition. They can be seen by visiting http://www.curtrenz.com/venus.html

Photos and descriptions of Venus during its current morning apparition would be welcome additions to this thread.
