The waning crescent moon, bright Jupiter, and Morning Star Venus shine from the southeast on this wickedly cold morning. The crescent moon (24.4 days old and 24% illuminated), overexposed in the image, is 6 degrees to the upper right of bright Jupiter. Venus, rapidly moving eastward is over 7 degrees to the lower left of Jupiter. The star Antares appears to the right of the planets. Tomorrow morning, the moon is near Venus.
