Planet Venus at its ‘greatest elongation’ from the sun tonight

With a magnitude of -4.4, Venus should be fairly easy to spot in the eastern sky, despite its low pre-sunrise altitude. While the planet will reach its greatest western elongation at 5:35 p.m. EDT (21:35 GMT), skywatchers will have the best chance at viewing Venus in the very early morning, according to In-The-Sky.org

Venus should be bright enough to see with the naked eye, depending on weather conditions or cloud coverage in your area. However, you might want to use binoculars to get an even more detailed view of the planet. Just look to the southeast before sunrise.
