    Question Is this Venus?



    Hi, I was wondering if it is possible to see Venus tonight?

    While I was walking outside I saw this bright star, later I found out that it could be Venus.

    Anyone who can help me find out that this is Venus or not?

    Yes, that appears to be Venus. It is in the western skies right now and can be seen shortly after sunset until late evening.
