|In this twilight skyview, a
stands in silent witness to a lovely
pairing of planets in the west.
The picture was recorded on April 5 from
Gallegos del Campo, Zamora, Spain.
Venus (left) and Mercury (right) are near their much
in the early evening sky.
But even in the coming days, these two
evening stars will remain
close in the western
sky at sunset.
In fact, with brighter Venus as a marker,
sky watchers will have an excellent guide for
nearby, a planet often hidden in the Sun's glare.
