That is a good catch with Venus John. It would indeed have been quite close to the Sun as it is just past inferior conjunction.
Interesting comments re Mars. I was not using sufficient magnification and did not spend the time at the eyepiece to see any hint of detail. I do remember seeing some detail a while ago in an earlier broad daylight observation. Mars was not long past Oposition then.
