Venus and the Moon, 11 July, 2013
Much better luck with Venus and the Moon this evening. There was still a bit of thin high cloud about, but it didn't interfere as much as on the 10th. Not show in the images is Regulus. Venus, the Moon and Regulus formed a nice triangle in the sky. Earleir in the day (aroudn 1:30 pm) using the crescent Moon as a guide it was reasonably easy to pick up Venus in the daylight, again despite cloud interference. Venus was best seen with averted vision though.
