The planets Venus and Jupiter shine brightly in the evening skies, far outshining all stars and clearly visible as it gets dark. Venus is visible to the west, even in the glare of twilight, and will continue to get higher in the sky each night and even brighter through the month of July. Using binoculrs, yu should be able to make out that Venus is not round, but shows phases just like the Moon does! Jupiter is high in the east after dusk.
Mars is also brightening and continues to do so until mid-August. It is now brighter than Sirius, the brightest of the nighttime stars.
