Cool graphics Craig,

So, I'm looking out of my house.  Where is it?

Cheers,

Mark

Right now it is in the west next to Jupiter. I am in Albany, NY at 42 latitude and can view it low in the sky for approx 1hr before it dips below the horizon. Not a very good view of Venus at this time. Several nights ago it was only partially illuminated. Jupiter however was visible as were 3 of its moons. Pretty surprising considering how low to the horizon it is. At your latitude I don't believe it is visible as the sun is still out. You should check out Stellarium it is a great help for viewing and finding stars. Good luck
