Venus: a splendid sight in the dawn sky!

Our neighbours to the east have finally trimmed their towering Leylandii hedge down to normal dimensions: it was about 6 metres high and 3 metres thick! As a result, I now have a decent view of the eastern sky. At the moment Venus, our twin planet (in size only!) is a glorious sight before dawn: it's the brightest object in the sky by a long way and even a small telescope will show its phases. Well worth a look!
