Venus planet Pictures by astronomical telescope in March 2012

The pictures above are video captures of the planet Venus. Atmospheric pollution was the lowest of all other days when I observed this planet.

Venus is the second planet from the Sun, which it orbits every 224.7 days. Planet is named after the goddess of love and beauty, Venus. After the Moon, it is the brightest object in the night sky, reaching an apparent magnitude of -4.6. Since Venus is the planet nearest the Sun than Earth, its elongation reaches a maximum of 47.8 °. Venus reaches maximum brightness shortly before sunrise or shortly after sunset, so it is known as 'morning star' or 'evening star', or, popular.
