Venus, this morning thru 20x80 binoculars was an outstanding sight. The cresent is maybe 15%-20% lit and the disk is so large its like looking at the moon. Illumination will rapidly increase in the coming weeks, although with that change comes a decrease in disk size. Catch it now and follow the phase change. edz.

Hi Ed --

I agree. It's a beauty right now and low power is enough. Enjoy.
