Venus is now a beacon in the early morning sky. Here’s how to see it

Venus was in inferior conjunction on August 13, in the dividing line between Earth and the Sun. It is now swinging away from this line, speeding ahead of Earth in its faster orbit.

In fact, Venus has been appearing in the eastern morning sky for the past two weeks. When September opened, the brilliant “morning star” rose just before the first glow of dawn at approximately 4:30 a.m. local daylight time. But as each morning passed, Venus rose ever higher, and became a little brighter; It will reach its peak on September 19, when it will appear at a stunning magnitude of -4.8. This is it 23 times brighter As the brightest star in the sky, Sirius (in Canis Major, Big Dog), is seven times brighter than the second brightest planet, Jupiter.
