Venus by the Lake-Tunc Tezel Finding Venus in the night sky is not too hard these days. Now appearing as the evening star, Venus rules as the brightest celestial beacon in west just after sunset. And if you can find Venus tonight, you can also easily find the lovely Pleiades star cluster (aka M45) close by. In this serene skyview, near Bolu, Turkey, Venus and the Pleiades are on the right, with brilliant Venus reflected in the calm waters of the small lake.
This planet has value, it starts light at the top right and gets dark on its way down to the bottom left. This gives it a strong sense of depth. The clouds provide shadows on both the planet and themselves which gives it a cool out of the planet look.
