Peliades, Venus, Hyades

If you get up around 6:00 am, local time, you can see Venus shining between the lovely Pleiades and the Hyades. I'm going to try an get a photo of this, but my favorite viewing spot has a blasted great tree in the way. I need to to a bit of gymnastics to see all three at the same time, so a bit of a hike may be in order. Over the next few days Venus will come loser to the Hydaes, and by around July 2 it will look as if the Tarus the Bull has two eyes, red Alderbran and brilliant white Venus.
