Alas, seeing was poor and the sky a little hazy but the planet is still fairly easy to pick up in the daytime sky.  Points of note include:
Illuminated Disk:  Not much on the disk apart from a vague dusky streak to the south, extending out from the terminator into the disk.
Bright Limb Band: Visible and Complete.
Terminator: Geometrically regular.
Cusp Caps: Hard to be sure in these conditions but perhaps the southern cusp was brighter.
Cusp Collars: Rather difficult but both looked about equal.
