Not much happening in the sky this week, but tonight Venus will be near the bright star Aldebaran, which is the eye of Taurus the Bull. Venus will be located about 6 degrees above Aldebaran to the right. Venus will also be about 40 times brighter than Aldebaran. The image below shows what you can see in the sky at around 9 PM.
