POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM

NOTE:

VENUS is the second brightest object in the night sky after the Moon and can be seen even in daylight.
When Venus is west of the Sun, it rises before the Sun in the morning (this explains why it is known as the 'Morning Star') ..
And when it is east of the Sun, Venus is easily seen in the evening, just after sunset (hence, the 'Evening Star') .

Nota: la migliore visibilità di Venere nell'emisfero settentrionale si ha quando la sua inclinazione sul piano dell'eclittica è massima. Cioè: dopo il tramonto durante l'equinozio di primavera, o prima dell'alba nel periodo dell'equinozio d'autunno.

Note: the best visibility of Venus in the northern hemisphere is when its inclination on the ecliptic plane is at its maximum. That is: after sunset during the spring equinox, or before sunrise in the period of the autumnal equinox.

Venus is most easily observed during its Elongation. A planet's elongation is the angle between the Sun and the planet, with Earth as the reference point. An elongation occurs when an inferior (closer to the Sun) planet’s position in its orbital path is at tangent to the view from Earth. Because Venus is inside the Earth’s orbit, its position is never very far from the position of the Sun. When Venus is at elongation, it is furthest from the Sun as viewed from Earth, so it’s view is best at that point. There are two kinds of elongations: - Eastern Elongation: it occurs when the planet is in the evening sky; - Western Elongation: it occurs when a planet is in the morning sky. At its greatest eastern and western elongations, Venus is between 45 to 47 degrees from the Sun and moves 3 hours 8 minutes behind or in front of the Sun. That only leaves about 2 hours and 48 minutes of observation in a given day.

circa Venere, anche gli Atzechi la consideravano associata a divinità. Venere impersonificava i gemelli Xolotl [sera] e Quetzalcóatl [alba]. ABOUT VENUS: Aztechs thought that - As ''Evening Star'', Venus personified Xolotl - At Dawn, it was Quetzalcoatl The 2 were twin.
