Morning Planets Meet the Moon

Venus and Mars are looking quite nice in the pre-dawn sky these days.  Jupiter will be joining them soon.

This morning was special, because the Moon was right between Venus and Mars.

Venus is to the upper right of the Moon, and Mars is to the lower left of the Moon.  They make a straight line and Mars is more or less twice as far from the Moon as Venus is.

The darker photo includes a meteor that flashed by.  The lighter photo shows more stars.

You'll need to click on the images and see the larger versions to see much detail, I think.
