Morning star Venus sparkles brightly in the southeastern sky this morning. (Click the images to seem them larger.) It reaches its greatest separation from the sun during this morning appearance on Saturday.
Earlier this morning, the moon made a compact grouping with Mars and Spica. (The moon is overexposed in the image.)
Meanwhile Saturn appears in the southern sky in the early morning hours near Zubenelgenubi and Zubeneschamali.
