venus-and-sunVenus will be at the closest it will be in between us and the Sun on March 27, 2009 for the year. 

That means it will be an excellent time to view Venus. The crescent will appear very thin. Towards the end of March you may even be able to see this in binoculars.  The best time to view this will be during the daytime. Be carefull not to accidently look at the sun in your finder or scope.

Try looking in the late afternoon while hiding your telescope in a shadow of a big object like a tree, fence, or house. The image shows where to look for it at 5:30 pacific time.
