We have been spoiled the past two weeks with space phenomenons. A lunar eclipse last week, International Space Station fly by Tuesday night, and now a cluster of 3 planets near the moon. For the next two nights just before sunrise, as long as the skies remain clear. You will get a good glimpse of Jupiter, Mars and Venus. Just look towards the east roughly an hour before sunrise each morning and find the moon. After you do, you will see 3 bright stars (They are actually planets). Venus will be the brightest with a bluish tint and the highest in the sky. Mars, which will be much dimmer and will appear to have a red tint will be lower and to the left of Venus. Then below Mars to the left, you will see Jupiter, shining just a little brighter and a tad bigger. I have one more treat for you, about 30 minutes before sunrise Friday morning, look due EAST, you will be able to see Mercury just above the horizon.
Sunrise times the nest two mornings. Friday: 6:58 AM. Saturday: 6:59 AM
