This year’s brightest planet is Venus, visibly seen low in the southwest as soon as night falls. It gives off a strangely steady light that doesn’t twinkle like other starts. Although it looks point-like to the naked eye, it has a little size to it (as even binoculars reveal) and this makes it more immune to having its light bent one way and then another by different temperature air layers.
