Attached is an observation of Venus I made this afternoon when the planet was high in the sky.
Seeing was once again very poor but I was able to discern a few features:
1444UT (W#15): There appeared to be a streak to the south and some more vague shadings to the south.
1456UT (W#21): Some cloud markings seen in this filter but no structure- in this filter the region to the north seemed a little darker.
1503UT (IL): The streak seen in the south was present along with some vague markings in the north.
Bright Limb Band: Visible and complete. Terminator: Geometrically regular. Cusp Caps: Not really visible. Cusp Collars: Not seen.

here is a contribution of Venus in IR and UV and a composite of both. The timing is in the image.
