Tomorrow, Dec 7, the celestial calendar has Venus and the moon only 1.9 degrees apart. So maybe some of can find Venus in the daytime.

2021/12/06 Brought out the binoculars about 45 minutes before sunset and was able to see both Venus and the Moon in the FOV. The crescent Venus was easily seen. Certainly helps having something to guide by.
