This is set for mid nothern latitudes but what a view in the early morning hours over the next few days. Jupiter, Venus and a waning gibbous moon brighten the early hours in the east. We are getting to the "Dog Days" of summer. So named as the sun is aligned with Canis Major (Big Dog).

Pretty cool seeing some of the winter stars still out. Capella, Aldeberan, Rigel and Betelgeuse are low in the east.

Check it out.
