Tonight's Sky for June 6: Venus at Superior Conjunction

Today, the planet Venus has reached superior conjunction. What does that mean? In layman's terms, Venus will be directly opposite the Sun as seen from Earth in a Venus, Sun, Earth alignment. End result: the planet will be at its worst point for viewing. This stands in contrast to an inferior conjunction, during which Venus would come directly between the Sun and Earth.
