2017, October 16: Venus, Mars and the Moon

Brilliant Venus and the waning crescent moon shine from the eastern sky this morning. Venus is now rising less than two hours before sunrise.  Dimmer Mars is now 6.5 degrees to the upper right of Venus.

Tomorrow morning the crescent moon appears about 1.5 degrees from Mars and 6.5 degrees above Venus.
