Venus and the Winter Constellations
I took these photos last August 10, 2009. During that time, Venus and the winter constellations (e.g Orion and Taurus) were visible after midnight. After 3 months, Venus is still visible before sunrise but the winter constellations can now be seen as early as 8pm.
