Venus at dusk...
We noticed the extra-bright milkiness of the Milky Way. With a moonless night, the Milky Way is brighter now than usual. I like how Akira Fujii describes it from one of my favorite sky-gazing sites, Sky & Telescope:
1The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
2 Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
3 They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
4 Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.
