Take a look at Venus in the next couple of days if you can. Don't wait too long 
as Venus is rapidly approaching the Sun. This ugly picture was taken on Monday 
afternoon when it was about 12 degrees from the Sun. A telescopic look is much 
better. It reminds me of a solar eclipse about 2 minutes before totality. Be 
sure to approach the eyepiece with caution if your telescope isn't aligned 
properly!
