Venus is at its brightest this week, and is headed towards its transit across the face of the sun in early June. Check out brilliant planet in the western sky or see the slim crescent shape due to reflected sunlight in a telescope. Saturn and the first magnitude star Spica get a visit from the Moon later in the week, and Mars is still easily visible in the overhead southern sky.
