Venus has been busy this year

Natural Incandescence: Venus. 
June 5, 2012 Venus transit over the face of the Sun. 
March 11 2012 Jupiter and Venus close alignment to the Earth. 

If you are awake in the northern hemisphere, around 4-5am over the next mornings until the 17th, look to the skies, because Venus and Jupiter will dance together one more time and welcome in the 'summer'.
