Venus 18:00 BST on 30 Septem­ber

All About Space - - Stargazer | This Month’s Planets -

Con­stel­la­tion: Virgo

Mag­ni­tude: -4.5

AM/PM: PM

Venus is very poorly placed for ob­ser­va­tion this month. That mag­ni­tude of -4.5 is mis­lead­ing be­cause, at the start of our ob­serv­ing pe­riod, Venus is set­ting at around the same time as the Sun, so isn’t eas­ily vis­i­ble despite its bright­ness, un­less you are ex­pe­ri­enced in day­time plan­e­tary ob­serv­ing.
