Venus and Jupiter (and the moon) This Morning, July 13, 2012

Morning Stars Venus and Jupiter shine in the eastern sky during bright twilight this morning in the Chicago area. Aldebaran and the Pleiades are lost in twilight’s glare in this view. Early twilight clouds cleared for this 3-second exposure of the planetary pair with the moon at 4:50 a.m. CDT.

The moon will join the pair on Sunday morning for a close grouping.

Watch the planetary pair in the morning sky throughout this month. Read more about Venus as a Morning Star.  For our monthly sky watching posting, click here.  (Click the image to see it larger.)
