inner planet hunting (Mississauga)

Venus hunting with Liam. I checked Procyon to learn that Venus was 43° up. That's way up there. Tried to spot it with the naked eye. Finally found it at 8:10pm. It's very faint. Pointed it out (with my old telescopic pointer) to Liam and he saw it. Later showed Malcolm and Lou.

Next target is Mercury at 21° elevation.

Spotted Saturn around 9pm.

No joy. Searching from 8 to 930.
