Daytime Venus

Today is a great time to see Venus during the day. The Moon is passing just a hair less than three degrees north of the Moon (around 22UT which is about 3pm MST or about now). Find the slender crescent Moon and Venus is about three finger widths (held at arms length) beneath it. Very easy to see today.

And pretty easy to photograph. Took this shot a few minutes before 3pm in Tucson.
