Venus seen during sunset

The next time this will be visible from Earth is in 2117, I think.

I just looked outside and I couldn’t see Venus. Actually I can’t see anything at all.

Are you looking straight at the sun with a telescope? I’ve always wondered if it’s possible or whether it would damage one’s eyes

This puts sizes into perspective. Even at its distance, the sun is so large that it appears many times greater than Venus.

For about 10 seconds I was confused as to why Venus moved down with the sun, the I realized I’m an idiot.

Reminds of of how big the universe is. It looks so small in comparison to the sun.

WOW really cool shot! It’s neat to see in plain view how tiny Venus is in comparison.

And it’s all past the horizon, but the light is now being curved.
