Venus Update 3/22/2017

   This morning Venus rose 33 minutes before the Sun and I was able to get some photos of its 1.4% illuminated crescent 3 degrees above the horizon. The separation between it and the Sun is now down to 9.7 degrees.

   In the enlarged image inset in this photograph I think that I can see the whole planetary disk not just the sunlit part.
