Tonight's Sky for May 2: Venus Sets at Midnight

Venus is known as the 'Evening (or Morning) Star' for a reason: it is the brightest thing in the sky just after sunset or before sunrise. That explained, one can now appreciate how good of a show that Venus is putting on right now. Proof? Venus is now setting after midnight, which doesn't occur that often. So, with so much time visible after dark, make it a point to get out and view our nearest planetary neighbor.
