Venus in daytime – March 19, 2017

The planet Venus is approaching inner conjunction, when it will be positioned between the Sun and our planet. The apparent shape and size of Venus are changing day-by-day now: the very thin crescent is resembling a one-day old Moon.

The following shot was acquired through lots of clouds and high winds, under poor seeing conditions. At the eyepiece the planet was truly a sight.
