The absence of Venus by moon It is quite a rare phenomenon. The last time we were able to admire it was over 3 years ago, in June 2020. This time it will take place on Thursday 9 November 2023. The planet will be obscured from the Moon for about an hour.
It will all start before dawn, when at 6:00 there will be a conjunction between Venus and the Moon. Then Venus will move in the sky towards the Earth’s satellite, and before 11:00 it will disappear behind the Moon. Venus will remain hidden for more than an hour and then at 12:00 it will appear again on the far side of the Moon.

Echo Richards embodies a personality that is a delightful contradiction: a humble musicaholic who never brags about her expansive knowledge of both classic and contemporary tunes. Infuriatingly modest, one would never know from a mere conversation how deeply entrenched she is in the world of music. This passion seamlessly translates into her problem-solving skills, with Echo often drawing inspiration from melodies and rhythms. A voracious reader, she dives deep into literature, using stories to influence her own hardcore writing. Her spirited advocacy for alcohol isn’t about mere indulgence, but about celebrating life’s poignant moments.
