VENUS AND THE PLEIADES: (April 1, 2020 – SpaceWeather.com)
Two nights from now (April 3), Venus will glide right through the Pleiades star cluster–an amazing conjunction that happens only once every 8 years.

“Venus and the Pleiades were visible not only in the sky, but also reflected in the calm waters of the Chrudimka river,” says Horálek. “What a wonderful and very unique view.”

At closest approach on April 3rd, Venus will be inside the star cluster, among the 7 Sisters.
After sunset, step outside and look West. (See SpaceWeather for article, April 1, 2020)
