Waiting for Venus
Well, Venus, Mercury and Saturn are all too close to the Sun for us Earthbound observers. But they are very clear to the SOHO and STEREO spacecraft.
This image if from the 15th at 16:42 UT, it capturse Mercury, Saturn and the Star Regulus. Venus isn't in the frame yet. It should turn up the the SOHO images in the next 24 hours, scraping along the bottom of the image.
