Venus in the Daytime

A few days ago I heard a report on the local radio that it was possible to see Venus in the daytime if you know where to look.

So two days ago, about an hour before sunset, we started looking for it.

The moon is in the late afternoon sky at present, and I knew that Venus should be nearby.

After about 3 minutes of scanning the region where Venus should appear, we did in fact see it. The sun was still shining. The moon was starting to brighten.

It was there again last evening, about 40 minutes before sunset, and again was visible in daylight.
