Chicago, Illinois:  Sunrise, 7:16 a.m. CST; Sunset, 4:43 p.m. CST.  Check local sources for sunrise and sunset times for your location.

Now rising 65 minutes before sunrise, brilliant Venus rises later each morning as it drops into bright twilight.  It is slowly heading for its superior conjunction over two months away.  I reappears in the evening sky later in the year.

At 30 minutes before sunrise, Venus is only about 5° in altitude in the southeastern sky.  Locate a clear horizon to see it.
