Brilliant Venus is “that bright star” in the eastern sky before sunrise during October.

The planet shines from in front of the stars of Leo. This morning it was 4.1° to the lower left of Regulus and 2.5° to the upper right of Rho Leonis (ρ Leo on the chart.)

See our summary about Venus during October 2020 and the feature article  about Venus as a Morning Star.

Each morning look at Venus and the nearby starfield with a binocular as the planet steps away from Regulus and toward ρ Leo.

Watch Venus continue to move through Leo during most of October.

The moon is in the region with Venus and Regulus beginning October 12.
