Venus should be easy to spot from April 17 until the 19 in the evening. About an hour after sunset, look outside to the west, and you will see a thin moon. The moon stays close to Venus for the next three evenings, moving a little further away each day.

By the 19th, Venus will be to the bottom right of the moon. Venus will shine very brightly and it won't twinkle.
