It's been known for some time that some asteroids circle the Sun inside Earth's orbit, but this month a Russian amateur astronomer has discovered the first asteroid inside Venus's orbit. See today's http://www.spaceweather.com .

The discovery was apparently by the "Zwicky Transient Facility" on 4 Jan 2020 :)
