Moon and Venus

I know this is late (I saw it on a couple of other blogs) but it's still cool: the Moon and Venus together in the daytime sky.

I saw an occultation of Venus -- when the Moon passes directly in front of the more distant planet -- when I was in high school, and it totally rocked. I'd love to catch another one through a telescope sometime.
