Alas seeing conditions were rather poor and the sky was rather hazy. Some points of note
 - Illuminated Disk: Some interesting shading present on the disk- there seemed to be a dark streak to the south extending out onto the disk 
   (or it could have been two separate streaks- hard to be sure in these conditions).
 - Bright Limb Band: Visible and Complete
 - Terminator: Geometrically regular
 - Cusp Caps: Both present and about equal.
 - Cusp Collars: Both present and about equal.
I had hoped to examine Venus with W#15 and W#47 filters, unfortunately the cloud cover became to thick and I stopped observing the planet at 1057UT.
