I’ve been hoping for a clear sky before sunrise in order to see the Waning Moon and four early-dawn planets, but we’ve been having cloudy overcast mornings of late. On the 26th I got somewhat lucky even though it was cloudy. Here are 3 of the 4 early-dawn planets along with the Waning Crescent Moon over the Pine Nut Mountains. Following that line of planets up above Mars was Saturn, but it was already so light out I couldn’t see it.
If you’re up an hour before sunrise your time this Saturday morning looking low in the southeast Venus and Jupiter, the two brightest objects in the sky after the Sun and Moon, are going to be spectacularly close at just a 1/2 degree apart!
Can you believe we’re just days away from May!? This month just flew by! I hope your week is going well and you have a lovely day.

A lovely view of the moon over the hills, Deborah! For sure April has flown by with me prepping for an art workshop this Saturday. Have a great weekend:)
Thank you so much, Emille! I hope your workshop is a huge success!!
I’m frustrated as when I look at the heavenly bodies, none of them are ever labeled!! 🙂 Lovely shot as usual, Deborah.
LOL!! I wish every heavenly view came labeled! Thank you so much, Janet! 😀
Beautiful photo, Deborah! Interesting info as well.
Thank you so much, Belinda!
Hoping for lovely Spring weather Deborah. The year has been fleeting away, partly due to Covid lock-downs for us and now finally we come out of having Covid and start to put the new normal back together. Enjoy your week my friend.
Thank you so much, Ashley! I hope you have a great week too! I’m glad your both feeling better!!
Wow super photo, Deborah. No, I can’t believe it’s May already.
Thank you so much, John! I wish time would slow down a bit.
Me too. I feel sometimes like I’m on a out of control downhill racer.
I always admire your photography skills, but I bow to your dedication in getting that perfect shot regardless of where it takes you. Great shot!
Thank you so much, Judy! 😍🤗
Thank you for getting up early, Deborah. If these are in the southeast, I might be able to see them. Everything to the west is airport.
Thank you, Dan! They are rising before the sun so definitely southeast. I hope you’re able to see them and have little to no clouds Saturday.
The forecast looks good right now.
Oh good! Fingers crossed!
Thank you so much, Pit!
