Venus Now Visible as a ‘Morning Star’

Venus is now visible as a ‘morning star’, seen as a very bright naked-eye object in the eastern horizon 1 to 2 hours before sunrise from August until early November of 2012. This planet is so bright that even a mobile phone camera should be able to capture it.

This image was captured on August 19, 2012, in Zambales, Philippines, with a DSLR camera-on-a-tripod with a 50 mm lens, set to ‘Auto’ mode.
