2017, August 13: Venus in Morning Sky

Venus shines this morning in front of the stars of Gemini with its bright stars Castor and Pollux appear to the left of the bright planet.  The star Betelgeuse appears to the upper right of Venus.  The trio of stars are among the bright Winter Stars that shine from the southern sky during the early evening hours of the winter months.  On August mornings they appear in the eastern sky during the pre-dawn hours.
