2019, January 26: Venus, Jupiter, and Antares


Brilliant Morning Star Venus continues to dazzle the pre-sunrise sky in the southeast.  Earlier this week, Venus passed Jupiter.  This morning they are over 4 degrees apart as Venus heads toward a conjunction with Saturn next month.  The star Antares is over 8 degrees to the right of Jupiter.  This morning, the gibbous moon is outside the frame.  It is headed toward displays with Jupiter and Venus next week.
