Venus Rising - Redux


This is a re-edit of a photo from a year ago. Venus, the bright object in the sky that looks like a star and casting light on the ocean, was rising along side the Galactic Center of the Milky Way early last year. I wasn't happy with the original edit, it had some color balancing I didn't like and some blend problems. My goal was to re-do the color balance so it was more natural but the natural colored sky in this shot was a pale brown-orange due to light pollution to the south, so I cooled it down again and made it blue. Not quite the real color but it looks a whole lot more pleasing and dramatic. I'm still not 100% happy with it, maybe I'll edit it again in another year...

Venus can be seen here rising in the early evening skies above Blydenburgh Park. Our sister planet was at its brightest this year on December 6th, and has recently been a fixture (around sunset) in our southwestern skies.

Venus Rising


It's Milky Way time again! It also happens to be Venus time. Venus is currently visible in the southeast from New England before dawn. This shot is from around 5am on Saturday morning on the southern Maine seacoast.

Goddess on the mountain top

I'm your Venus, I'm your fire

At your desire

Got what no one else had

Venus shines brightly during twilight over autumn trees at Lindy Point, Blackwater Falls State Park



Earth's "sister planet" a.k.a Venus. After the Moon, it is the brightest natural object in the night sky, reaching an apparent magnitude of −4.6, bright enough to cast shadows. That’s why I love this planet :o) . Today weather is keep changing! from the clean sky to cloudy, then raining! I must stop all the homework immediately because this weird weather! Insomnia is sucks, no sleep for the whole night. So this photo is taken early in the morning about 6.30am. have a nice day~





Venus sets as the Belt of Venus takes up the horizon over Yanuya Island, Fiji. Mercury had just set and Mars sits up higher in the sky.


The Belt of Venus is a colourful band between the dark eclipsed sky and the dark blue sky. It can be seen in nearly every direction including that opposite the Sun. Straight above, blue sky is normal sunlight reflecting off the atmosphere.


This was my last astro shot of 2014, let's hope 2015 brings some good luck to all :)

Self-timer shot taken during a night spent on the summit of Mount Brévent (2.525 m), over Chamonix.


Taken on March 14th 2012, looking West, just to show the last light of the sun already gone, and, even more important, the beautiful shining presence of two planets: Jupiter and Venus.


On the right of the two planets mentioned, in this photo you can see: Hamal (Alpha Arietis), Sheratan (Beta Arietis), the brightest stars in the constellation of Aries.


Center: Almaak, Mirach, Alpheratz, of Andromeda constellation.


More to the North (up on the far right) is visible the Cassiopeia constellation, with Ruchbah, y Cas, η Cas, Caph, Shedir...

Using an astronomical almanac, I knew ahead of time that Venus was going to transit in front of the sun so I set up the Questar 3.5" telescope with a solar filter and shot this from my yard in Vermont. The other small dots are sun spots.

I took this shot 30 minutes after sunset. Except for a thin layer of clouds at the horizon all clouds had disappeared in time for sunset and only started re-appearing about 45 minutes after sunset. Quite funny really!


I really liked the orange strip of fading light at the horizon which started appearing about 15 to 20 minutes after sunset. I left shortly after taking this shot as at that point the mosquitoes had discovered me and were about to have my blood for dinner. Compared to what I have experienced last year they were still pretty tame, though.


View On Black


Venus, the dazzling morning or evening star, outshines all the other stars and planets in the night sky. It begins the year in the evening sky, well up in the west as darkness begins to fall. It will disappear from view in late March as it passes between Earth and the Sun. It will return to view as a “morning star” by early April, and remain in the morning sky until December (from StarDate Online | Planet Viewing in 2009).

Venus, the Milky Way and a laser shot from the summit of Haleakala.


Finally got the laser shot! Came to see if I could catch some lightning and got lucky. The laser light pulses but in a long exposure it looks like a single green beam.


Venus and the Milky Way were exceptionally bright even with some light from the fading sunset.

Stopped by the boardwalk to watch the sunrise and caught this pre-dawn shot of Venus (I think it's Venus) rising over the Atlantic Ocean.

Moving to a full frame camera I tied a bit of star photography. It is relatively difficult especially after a couple but hey, what else do you do at 1 am.


P.s. I love the sky at Venus Bay. I am not at all surprised that the whole town has a solar theme.

Venus' Looking Glass gets its name from its flat, black, shiny seeds that look like tiny mirrors. Medicinal uses have been attributed to it and Cherokee Native Americans used to steep the roots and drink the infusion for digestion.


** Can someone help me? How do you post pictures in the comments without having the picture show up in your photostream? **

Venus is the larger, then Mars atop.

The prettiest girl in Warsaw gave me the idea.

Venus rises over the rocky shoreline at Granite Bay, Noosa National Park. The central bulge of our Milky Way dominates the area above Venus.


Canon 6D (full spectrum modified), ISO3200, Multirow panorama consisting of shots that vary in shutter speed (15s to 3min) and aperture (f2.2 to f4.0). An Astrotrac was used to track the stars (no star trailing, longer exposures, lower ISO).

The Venus Flytrap (also Venus's Flytrap or Venus' Flytrap), Dionaea muscipula, is a carnivorous plant that catches and digests animal prey—mostly insects and arachnids. Its trapping structure is formed by the terminal portion of each of the plant's leaves and is triggered by tiny hairs on their inner surfaces. When an insect or spider crawling along the leaves contacts a hair, the trap closes if a different hair is contacted within twenty seconds of the first strike. The requirement of redundant triggering in this mechanism serves as a safeguard against a waste of energy in trapping objects with no nutritional value. (From Wikipedia article)


Venus Böcekkapan çiçeği küçük hayvanları avlayıp sindiren etobur bir bitkidir. Bir böcek veya örümcek yaprakların arasında yürürken dikey tüylerden ikisine 20 san arayla değerse yapraklar kapanır ve salgılanan enzimlerle böcek sindirilir.

Best Viewed Large.......When the Venus Fly Trap shows red colouring it means it's a very healthy plant.

I appreciate all the visits, faves and kind comments -

Many thanks Friends and Happy Thursday !

Beautiful Venus is growing up. I hope that her future is filled with happy and safe times.

Aunque hay que verla en grande para apreciarlo ;-)

I just had to grab this pic of the Milky Way before it set. Even though it was not the best time to view, or photograph it still showed up very well as it lay parallel to the horizon.

Venus is the bright 'star', and together with the telegraph pole point towards the direction of the core of the galaxy.


The same night as the previous shot. In this photo we can see Venus and Jupiter very close to each other and shining more than usual.

Just above the mess hall. Some dude had a massively powerful green laser pointer that allowed him to point to stars in the sky with a continuous beam. I want.
