Venus, Pleiades, Taurus

Venus sits a bit over midway between the Hyades and the Pleiades (to get a good view of this image, especially on older monitors, you have to click on it for the larger version). The image does not do justice to the sight of this bright planet glowing between the glittering swarm of the Pleiades and the warm orange glow of Alderbaran. Over the next few days Venus will glide closer to the Hyades, coming closest to Alderbaran on July 2. Sadly, it is going to be cloudy over the next few days here (missed out on the planetary line-up with the Moon too).
