Well, It's been a while and quite a lot has happened in the world of Astronomy already this year with probes and scopes being launched by NASA and so on.

Locally I have noticed that Venus seems to have vanished from view quite quickly after a prolonged showing which at times seemed to be very high in the sky compared to my experiences from years gone by.

Today I noticed quite early on a very slender crescent moon visible in daylight which had thickened somewhat by nightfall but was still quite impressive.
