First Images of Venus
I saw it the previous night, at my lab BBQ, but I was too busy enjoying watching the Iron Chef and the Spin Bowler playing cricket with OldestOne and MiddleOne. Tonight, I was able to get out with my camea, but the sky was so bright that I only just got this image before Venus went behind the roof. I'm really pleased Venus is back, time for the Great Venus Animation Project #2,
Am I mad or was it not your work from this time last year?
Holiday Cheer! peter
All the best to you and yours for the holidays! Clear Skies!
Finding Venus in the daytime is an intersting pasttime, which will get you many curious stares, but when you can point out a daytime planet to people, they are amazed. Jupiter is a lot, lot harder. Good luck.
