Visibility II / V
The conjunctions of Venus and Jupiter happen unnecessarily often in the daylight, but it is not an obstacle to detection, only a retarder. This time, the duo was found confusingly easily with a finger-gauge of the sun and horizon with forks. When the approximate place was clear, the binoculars immediately bounced off the bright Venus, and Jupiter next to it. After that, Venus was already easily visible to the naked eye when he knew the place. (Trees and clouds are relatively good helpers, though.)
I was a bit behind, at this point the difference between the planets was already about 0.3 °. Sure, the daytime sky is a bit boring to watch these, but it was bad to watch again. This time, however, the view was not at last level , but better than expected.
Also shown is a partial magnification of the view at 170mm focal length with a poor lens.
