Where's Venus? Our brilliant sister planet, so familiar to morning and evening commuters, has been increasingly hard to find since winter, sinking low in the east before dawn. But it will pass behind the sun in early June and reappear in the west after sunset. As the Morning Star, Venus was "Eosphoros" to the Greeks. As the Evening Star, it was "Hesperos." Venus joins bright Jupiter Nov. 30 as a strikingly close pair in the evening sky.
