Daytime Venus using a Mobile Phone (just)
As you can see (if you click the image to embiggen it), it sorta worked. You can see Venus .. just, as a faintish dot just slightly more intense than the noise. I think that pushes the limit of mobile phone cameras.
Just for balance, here's Sunday's conjunction with the mobile phone. No earth-shine but you do see the path of the Moon (when you click to embiggen).
