    Venus is visible in daylight again. I saw it yesterday in a good sky with some scattered clouds using binoculars. In a week or so it should be easy without optical aid if you're looking in exactly the right spot. In April Venus was trailing the Sun across the sky and afternoons were good times to look for it. It is now leading the Sun, and you'll have better luck in the morning. Today it transited about 2.5 hours before the Sun. If you're a morning person, find Venus just before sunrise when it's still brilliant, and then check in on it every half hour or so. How many hours after sunrise can you find it without help?

    I have just been ouitside. It is  between nautical and civil twilight. It is misty but Mars, the Moon and Venus can be clearly seen in a straight line. We will be taking our grandaughter out today so will keep an eye on the sky. With her young eyes she may  see venus easier than we can.

    OTTOMH I cannot recall if venus and mars can be used for lunars.
