Venus sinks, Saturn rises

Earlier this week, brilliant Venus passed Saturn in our early morning sky. Now, the Earth-sized planet drops closer to the horizon as the Ringed Planet pulls away higher in the sky. As the mornings pass, Venus approaches closer to the not-yet-risen sun, eventually coming between it and us next year.

Look for Venus and Saturn in the southeast at 6 a.m. all this week.

Such is our view from Earth...
