The stars plugin recently got support for displaying the sun and the moon.

During this task the planet Venus should be added.

  • Research for the correct method to find the Venus position in the astrolib documentation
  • load the file QPixmap(MarbleDirs::path("bitmaps/stars/star_0_white.png"))
  • display it at the right position using the pixmap above
  • allow for enabling and disabling the planet inside the settings dialog.
  • Add a label for Venus. Reuse the string inside the Planet class.
  • Make sure the labels are turned on and off via the context menu and settings dialog just like done with the moon and the sun.
