Observing Venus at Inferior Conjunction
« on: March 25, 2017, 07:05:34 PM »
For once, I have been following my own advice, and looking at Mercury and Venus after sunset  as the one headed towards a good eastern elongation and the other towards inferior conjunction, but a long way north of the sun. Both were easy enough to pick up on Wednesday; yesterday I was too late to catch Venus. Today, I was watching my western horizon ( of buildings) with binoculars just after the sun sank behind it, looking for Venus, and there it was,at about 6.15, as a very slender crescent, facing southwest. And Inferior conjunction was at 10 am this morning! That's a first for me.   :)
