Dad gets his first peek at daytime Venus.

During the five hour trip home from NY, we stopped in for Easter family dinner at Mom & Dad’s house. The sky was really lousy, with banks of clouds rolling across the sky. Anyway, over dinner I asked Dad if he’d ever seen Venus in the daytime. He hadn’t, so I went out with my Canon 10x35IS binoculars to find it. Dad only got a few quick looks at Venus between clouds, but it was a first nonetheless!

He also mentioned he’d never seen Mercury at all. Gotta take care of that!
