Venus and Pleiades - April 11, 2015

This wide-field image shows the constellations of Tuarus (lower center) and Orion (lower left). On this evening, the planet Venus (the brightest star in this image) is within 3 degress of the Pleiades. Faint clouds add to the scene which played out in the western sky shortly after sunset.
