Spot Venus in the daytime sky… (on 24th June 2014)

On June 24th, during a certain daylight period, the thin waning crescent Moon passes very close to Venus. At minimum separation (9:12 EDT), it passes 1° 16’ degrees south of Venus.) But the exact ecliptical conjunction occurs at 8:48:01 EDT., considering the topocentric frame. Knowing this proximity you can try to spot Venus in the daytime sky. (1° 16’ is equal to two and a half /full/ moon disk diameters.)
