While Venus is often visible in the morning or evening sky throughout the year, Monday presents a unique opportunity to see the moon and Venus inter-playing with each other. What’s even cooler is there is going to be a lunar occultation of Venus and the moon. What is a lunar occultation? This is when the moon passes in front of a celestial object like a star or in Monday’s case a planet, like Venus.
