Daylight Venus


Finding Venus in the daylight

Finding Venus in the daylight

Yes, it is possible to see Venus in the daylight.  Right now is a great time to try.  Find the moon, and about three degrees below it  and off to the right (West) will be a bright spot.   I just did it myself. WOOT!

UPDATE; January 30 2009: You can repeat the feat today. Venus will again be below and to the right of the moon.
