To the left it is Venus as photographed last evening just after sundown. It had an altitude of only 6°at sunset (lat. 38° Ν) and was visible to the naked eye. This morning i tried to locate it again (altitude 5°at sunrise from my site). Managed to photograph it (right photo), but this time it wasn't visible to the naked eye due to haze. With better transparency conditions i am sure it could be located with the naked eye on both evening and morning. This evening and tomorrow morning there is a last chance to try again.
