Last weekend I went to see the York Astronomical Society to hang out and do some astronomy. This time of year the days are starting to get long and it doesn’t get dark until very late, but there are still plenty of things to see.
Here’s Venus just poking out near where the Sun had set. It’s much dimmer than it was a couple of months ago, due the amount of sun light that’s actually reflecting from the surface.
You can even make out the crescent shape of Venus with this photograph, though it looked much better through a telescope.
I also took my first ever photographs (and video) of the Sun through a telescope.
