Spotted Venus for the first time since the transit: it was a tiny skinny crescent in my 10x50 binoculars. I could not find Jupiter, which was only 7 degrees away (though I didn't check its location ahead of time). There were no clouds, but yesterday was very hot and humid (32°C) and the transparency this morning was poor, a kind of brassy haze on the eastern horizon.
