Image Details:

I have been following Venus getting rapidly closer to the sun each night - & have been amazed at how much it changes each night, just a few days ago I could see it clearly in the daytime, but now it's getting very hard to see at all.
Being stuck in the Corona-Virus curfew of Peru, I was waiting & hoping it would pass close to the cross on the hill, so I could capture it from my terrace - Tonight was the night !
