Default Venus 30/05/04

Daytime capture of Venus. Need to be careful while locating it now as
it's only 13 degrees from the Sun. Sweeping the area that Venus is in
needs concentration and should not be attempted unless you really know
what you are doing.

Phase is now approaching 2% illuminated.

It took ages to locate it due to large patches of cloud messing the
area up and the care needed to sweep so close to the Sun. I've just
reposted the image with a better colour balance (click on the same
link to view it).
