About fifteen minutes ago I was able to see Venus without optical aid before sunset. I swept the brilliant planet up with my 8x42 Celestron binocular first and then, using the top branch of a tree in my front yard as a reference point, was able to see it naked-eye.
Sic itur ad astra!
Chance favors the prepared mind.
A man is a small thing, and the night is very large and full of wonders.
