hi all, does venus show up as three quarters of a misty green ball? i know the dark edge of the moon shows on a sencer but not the nakid eye when it rises or sets, one or the other...

just wandered what else does.

If the question is..does Venus show phases like the moon?, the answer is Yes.

Venus shows phases just like the moon does, you won't see anything other than the phases through a telescope though.

I think what you are seeing is "ghosting" or internal reflections in the lens.

In any case the size is wrong. If the bright image is the moon, then Venus, in the same frame would be very small - barely discernable as a disk.

What he said Wink - venus would be a small dot in comparison of only a couple of pixels, but as it's so relatively bright against the rest of the pic there's probably issues of flare etc going on. You would indeed need a telescope to see a phase like that

mystery solved lol, thank you.... after taking a fresh look it does seem to be the same size as the 'dark' side of the moon too.
