The first "person" (or animal) to see it.
Probably Ughhh the Caveman.

Venus was named by the early Sumerian and Babylonian astrologers, and has been known since antiquity. The planet Venus is the third-brightest object in the sky, after the Sun and Moon; anyone who turned his head skyward would have noticed it.
