Here are some photos of Venus very near the Moon taken on September 8, 2013. This provided an excellent opportunity to see and photograph the planet Venus in broad daylight. Having said that, most of the photos were taken in the daytime. Click on images to enlarge.
These four photos were taken during the mid-afternoon. The photo on the left is the gibbous disc of Venus as seen through my Meade ETX-125 telescope. The remaining three photos show Venus as a point of light to the left of the 3-day old crescent Moon.
These four photos were taken during the late afternoon and early evening. Note that Venus is the point of light directly above the 3-day old crescent Moon in the two photos on the left and Venus is to the right of the Moon in the two other photos.
These four photos were taken about a half hour after sunset. Note that Venus is the point of light to the right of the Moon.
These three photos were taken near Watertown Square a little later in the evening. Note that Venus is again the point of light to the right of the Moon.
