Space Weather News for June 6, 2005
VENUS RETURNS: After many months in hiding, Venus has returned to the
evening sky. You can see it at sunset; it pops into view long before the
sky grows completely dark. Wednesday evening, June 8th, is an especially
good time to look, because then Venus will be pleasingly close to the
slender crescent Moon.
DAYTIME METEORS: The annual Arietid meteor shower peaks on June 7th and
8th. You won't see many meteors, though, because the shower is most
intense when the sun is high in the sky. The Arietids are a rare daytime
meteor shower. Researchers aren't certain where the Arietids come from,
but they might be debris from sungrazing asteroid Icarus.
