Venus big magnitude April 2012 Pictures by telescope

This is the planet Venus filmed on April 30, 2012, when the planet was at -4.5 magnitude, enough to be visible in daylight. This date is recorded in the table of special positions of the planet as very bright.

Venus will shine in our sky early, in the first part of May 2012 because is close to Earth. Watch it at sunset just to the west.
Although Venus is already a bright planet, it will be very bright while is approaching our planet the next few days, and in May 2012 which makes it look much bigger and brighter for us.

Venus also makes the transition from the other side of the Sun, close to our planet. This provides more sunlight reflected from the planet, making it shine.

On June 6, 2012, depending on where you are in the world, Venus will transit the Sun, and moves in front of the Sun as seen from our perspective here on Earth.

The pictures above are qick captures of the video I made ​​last night by telescope at 20:00 to 22:00.
