Splendid planet Venus video through telescope

Two planets are closer to the Sun than Earth and they are Mercury and Venus. This means that we can not see them very far from the Sun in the sky. All other planets glow in the midnight sky, but these two "inferior planets" (planets which have a closer distance from the Sun than the Earth) are never seen more than a few hours after sunset or before sunrise .

The inner planet, Mercury, it can be no more than 28 ° from the Sun, and Venus at about 47 ° . These moments when Mercury and Venus reach maximum angular separation from the Sun, are the most precious for seeing these planets better. When they get to this position, we say that they are at greatest elongation.
