Morning Sky Show with Jupiter, the Moon and Saturn 10-13 September

Morning sky on Monday September 10 looking north-east as seen from Adelaide at 5:30 am local time in South Australia. Jupiter below the Hyades makes a long triangle with the red star Betelgeuse. The waning Moon is between Jupiter and Venus .  Similar views will be seen elsewhere at the equivalent local time (click to embiggen).

The morning skies are a bit more attractive over the next few days, the waning Moon is between Venus and Jupiter on the 10th and 11th, and on the 12th and 13th the crescent Moon is close to Venus.

The Moon is closest to Venus on the 13th at 5 degrees away. This is also an excellent opportunity to see Venus in the daylight.
