Venus to shine brightest on 25 September, 30 November

The National Astronomical Research Institute of Thailand (NARIT) is encouraging the general public to observe Venus which will be shining the brightest in the night of 25 September over the western sky and in the dawn of 30 November 2018 in the eastern sky visible throughout Thailand.

NARIT Director Sarun Posayachinda said the astronomical phenomenon where Venus will be seen the brightest in the sky will occur on 25 September 2018 during the night and can be observed by naked eyes over the western horizon after sunset during 6.00 p.m. and 8.00 p.m.

The phenomenon will occur again on 30 November 2018 before sunrise during 4.00 a.m. and 6.00 a.m. Venus can be better observed with a telescope to see the planet appearing in a crescent shape like the Moon.

Venus is the second planet from the Sun in the solar system. Its position forbids a full sighting from the Earth and will only appear in the night sky for a short period of time before sunrise or after sunset.
