Saw it visually in the 9×50 finder. Absolutely fantastic, crystal clear blue skies. A very large, very thin, very faint ghostly crescent moon with a tiny but very bright ‘c’ of a crescent Venus next to it. I watched the crescent of Venus get smaller and smaller until it pinged out of existence behind the moon. Despite 40 years of observing, sights like this never fail to grab me.
