2022-01-17 18:58UT. We start the 2022 planets observing campaign with a day time image of Venus near inferior conjunction. This makes for a large thin crescent of the planet. Illumination was 3.3% Inferior conjunction was 2022-01-09 01UT so the observation was just 8 days after that at an elongation of 15 degrees. The elongation will increase rapidly as Venus moves into the morning sky.
