In addition to being a stunningly beautiful sight at night, the Venus-Moon conjunction on Saturday, February 25th, is an ideal opportunity to view Venus during broad daylight.Venus is now so far from the Sun in the sky that it's easy to see on any clear day. However, it's generally very hard to locate its pinprick of light against the vast expanse of blue sky. That problem is solved on Saturday, when the crescent Moon points the way.
As long as the air is clear, Venus should be visible any time in the afternoon, but it will get easier as the Sun gets lower. Here's the easiest way.
Go out an hour before sunset, and find a building that can block the Sun. Stand just inside the edge of the building's shadow, so you can see the Sun's glow but not the Sun itself. Look for the Moon 40° above that spot and about 15° to the left. (A fist at arm's length marks off about 10°.) It's a pretty thin crescent, so it probably won't pop out instantly.
Now look a two or three degrees (finger-widths) left or lower-left of the Moon for Venus. The exact relationship depends where you live, as shown in the diagram at upper right. Earlier in the afternoon, the Moon will be lower relative to Venus.
Binoculars make sighting Venus easy, but they shouldn't be necessary if the air is reasonably clear.
