    OK, I’ll confess it. I’ve looked and looked, and I can’t find Venus. There are three possibilities: it’s hidden in the glow of the moon, the resolution of my computer screen is terrible, or I’m going blind. (There may be a fourth possibility: that you’re playing a joke on us!)

          As the day progresses, the Sun and Venus rise high in the sky. Venus is quite visible in daylight with a clear blue sky, if you know where to look. Several years ago I set up my telescope downtown and invited passers-by to look at Venus. Some refused. Some were impressed. Some wondered why they couldn’t see the Moon with their naked eye after seeing the crescent of Venus in the scope. They left, still confused, even after I explained.
