Venus, only 100 minutes after Venus inferior conjunction.

Today, in Japan, Venus inferior conjunction occurs in daytime 9:55 (UTC+9).
However, Venus lies to the north of Sun by 5 degrees, so Venus shape must be bottom-lit crescent.

Today, at the culmination of Venus and Sun, I introduced Sun in the field of view of my camera, and change the altitude direction of the camera by 5 degrees, and then I took some images.

Then I found the bottom-lit crescent Venus in the images!

Nikon COOLPIX P510 digital camera (no telescope); ISO 100, F8.3, 1/2000s exposure, f=1000mm.
