Observer’s Guide – June 2015 — 1 Comment

  1. ” On the 5th, Venus reaches greatest Eastern elongation, meaning that it will be at its highest point above the eastern horizon of this particular orbit. If you’re a morning observer, there’s no way you’ll miss it. ”

    I just wanted to point out the error in your post “Observer’s Guide – June 2015”. I hope this is okay with you.
    Venus is following the Sun across the sky when at Eastern elongation, so it is visible in the evening sky after sunset. It is at its furthest point to the east of the Sun in the sky.
    Similarly, at greatest Western elongation from the Sun, Venus leads the way and so rises in the morning sky before sunrise.
    Hope I have explained this clearly and look forward to reading more of your posts.
    Thank you.
