Description

Tough seeing conditions as Venus rapidly closes in on inferior conjunction with the Sun. Venus has exceeded 50 arc-seconds of angular diameter.

There are many ghost images of the day-side crescent, but it appears that Beta Regio is visible as a dark spot near the limb on the northern hemisphere.
