"The sun has one kind of splendor, the moon another and the stars another; and star differs from star in splendor." -1 Corinthians 15:41
I don't wish to start a Venusian mutual admiration society, but I have to admit I am a bit excited about the prospect of trading Venus observations.
I don't remember Venus being so high up in the sky as it is now. Additionally scope cool down is a cinch and we don't have to freeze in order to catch a good view. Don't even need a flashlight to draw by either.
I also recommend sending a copy of this to ALPO's Venus coordinator as Venus images are always a bit small in number compared to the other planets. I think there is also a downloadable page of observing tips as well.
