Crescent Venus and the Crescent Moon, 26 and 27 February 2014
Crescent Venus is very close to the crescent Moon on February 26, and not far from the Crescent Moon on February 27. This is an excellent opportunity for astrophotography.
Africa, India and parts of South-East Asia will see an occultation of Venus on the 26th. For India and South East Asia this will be a daytime occultation.
It was pretty just before sunrise. I didn't have my binoculars to perceive Venus as a crescent. All of the obvious planets in the morning sky except Jupiter !
Saw all the planets sans Jupiter lined up yesterday morning, does look impressive.
