How are you going to use it when that funny looking Musk guy's Starlink blocks it out?

A little known factoid, some "primitive people" can use Venus to find their way around in the day. They know where to look for it in the sky. Al Fansome used it to find his way back to Shady Acres when he'd get turned around riding manatees in the swamps. He grew up in the Mojave Desert, his direction finding abilities are what got him into CalTech. JPL insisted on studying him to refine missile guidance systems.
