Seeing was rather poor, however there is very little to see on the disk now as Venus appears as a slender crescent as inferior conjunction rapidly approaches:
Illuminated Disk: Nothing of note on the crescent except the dark terminator shading.
Unilluminated Disk: Not visible.Bright Limb Band: Visible and complete- indeed this is practically all that's left.
Terminator: Geometrically regular.Cusp caps: Not seen.
Cusp Collars: Not seen- in both cases the phase is now much to small.
