Not very good images. Seen Venus this evening in the SW. Just took a couple of images in absolutely freezing conditions. On the 2nd image you can see it through the cloud.

Nicely caught Martin - I have yet to see Venus this time around.

On Dec 1st Venus is occulted by the Moon with Jupiter only 2deg away - hoping for clear weather so we can all catch this event!
