    Venus in all her glory

    The planet Venus has been dominating the nighttime sky recently, but did you know it's possible to see the bright world in the daytime? Today (March 26), Venus can be spotted in the afternoon if you know where and when to look.

    In fact, a daytime apparition of Venus in the sky was famously spotted by none other than President Abraham Lincoln in 1865.
    It was March 4, 1865, and the streets of Washington, D.C., were packed with crowds watching the inauguration of Abraham Lincoln for his second term as president. Suddenly someone in the crowd spotted something strange in the sky: a tiny brilliant point of light. Excitement swelled through the crowd as each person pointed it out to their neighbor. The commotion even reached as far as the Lincoln himself, and soon he too was pointing at the brilliant point in the sky.

    One of Lincoln's bodyguards, Sergeant Smith Stimmellater, described it this way: "Soon after the President concluded his address, he entered his carriage, and the procession started up Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House, the escort from our Company following next to his carriage. Shortly after we turned onto Pennsylvania Avenue, west of the Capitol, I noticed the crowd along the street looking intently, and some were pointing to something in the heavens toward the south
    "I glanced up in that direction, and there in plain view, shining out in all her star-like beauty, was the planet Venus."
    - Sergeant Smith Stimmellater Abraham Lincoln's bodyguard, in 1865

    Thanks Celine

    We had a beautiful view last night of Venus, Jupiter and the moon.

    It's 5.30pm now and a cleary sunny sky. I can see the moon but no view of Venus.

    Around 4 p.m., local time, today, go outside and position yourself so that the Sun is hidden by a rooftop. Blocking the Sun is essential if you are looking anywhere close to the Sun. WARNING: Never look directly at the sun with your unaided eye or through binoculars or telescopes without special light filters. Severe eye damage can result.

    Face due south, and look two-thirds of the way up from the horizon to overhead. If the sky is clear, you should be able to see the crescent Moon clearly. Look just above the Moon and you should be able to see Venus as a tiny pinpoint of bright light.

    I saw it last night too, it looked like this:



    But it was a bit further away from the moon, and there was a bit "more" moon.

    That's not a camera malfunction. It's NIBIRU!

    Nibiru is a Dark Star which resides in the fourth dimension. Since we are in the third dimension we could not see it but it has always been there. But now with the solar system coming into alignment with the galactic core, the sun spewing out the highest levels of radiation in documented history, and the cosmic rays bombarding us from Cygnus, we are now moving into the next reality. Since we are just beginning our trek into the fourth dimension Nibiru will slip into our reality from time to time during "spikes" of elevated activity. Soon it will become a permanent fixture in our sky along with the rest of the universe it resides in.

    And the more drugs and alcohol one consumes the sooner it will happen!

    Really nice photos Jenci! Thanks!
