Attached is another observation of Venus made this morning. Alas seeing conditions were very poor- around AIV-V. I could not use a magnification beyond 70x as image definition was too poor. Since the conditions were so poor there didn't seem to be any point in undertaking any filter work. Today both cusp caps looked normal,although yesterday's effect could have been present but beyond my ability to see it but they both appeared to be normal in the few steadier moments.
Illuminated Disk: Once more no definite streaks observed,just the general hue of disk.
Unilluminated Disk: not visible
Bright Limb Band: Visible and Complete
Terminator: Geometrically regular,dark terminator shading present.
