The moon joins Venus and Jupiter
Over the past week, Venus dropped past Jupiter. On Monday morning, our moon joined them in the early morning sky. As the days and weeks pass, Venus continues its decent, soon becoming lost in the solar glare. Jupiter, on the other hand, slowly becomes brighter as it rises earlier. By dawn it is well up in the southeast.
