Venus achieves greatest elongation today which means this is the farthest it will appear from the Sun. You can view it still in eastern sky before sunrise. If you view it through a telescope, Venus appears half lit. This photo is from yesterday morning so it’s not quite half lit, but you can compare it to the photo I posted on July 31.
From today forward it will appear lower in the sky with each passing day. Through the telescope it will appear more gibbous, but will dim as it continues to pull away from us and will eventually swing behind the Sun from our perspective.
