"A man is a very small thing, and the night is very large and full of wonders." -Lord Dunzany

Venus right now

Nope, not the one from Milo, but the faithful planet that also is known as The Morning Star or Evening Star. Venus is the brightest natural object in the night sky after the Moon. Although beautiful seen from a distance, this is a very hostile place to be. The pressure of the atmosphere is 93 bar (your car tire is a couple of bars…) and the temperature is around 460°C.

Venus is shining very brightly these days - here reflecting itself in the Ofoten Fjord
