274. Morning/Evening Star - Venus Anadyomene

It's been quite a while, but now I've got another star which is - in two ways even - no star:

Probably the most famous portrayal of the so called "Venus Anadyomene" - Venus rising from the sea: This is copied from Sandro Botticelli's painting "Nascita di Venere" (The Birth of Venus).

When the planet Venus is visible in the sky, it is often called "morning star" or "evening star". Obviously, it is no star yet often the brightes object in the morning or evening sky. It is always close to the sun - depending on its position rising shortly before or setting shortly after the sun. I knew I had to pay a tribute to this "star" at some point throughout this project, so here it is now. :)

P.S.: Late post as usual... This is yesterday's star.
