Venus and the Bow of Gemini (Wedensday 30 May)

The western evening sky as seen in the Southern Hemisphere roughly an hour after sunset on Wednesday May 30th (click image to enlarge it).

Venus has been zooming through Gemini. As I write, hail is battering down outside, so I've missed most of this. If I am lucky, the skies will clear tomorrow and I can see the "Bow Of Gemini".

The Bow will be made of of Veuns, and the bright starts Pollux and Castor. The Arrow is made from Mercury and Pollux. It should be quite sight. Venus is only half a fingerwidth from magnitude 3.6 Kappa Geminorum, so that should look pretty cool as well.
