Venus during November

The planet is Venus is visible in the early morning throughout the month of November. It will be highest at the end of the month. Over this time period it will slowly grow from a thin crescent (8.4% of the disk illuminated) 54.4” in angular diameter to a thicker crescent (25% illumination) and a smaller angular diameter of 41.2”. It gets smaller because the planet is getting further away from the Earth as it moves around the Sun.

Clear skies.
