The dance in the dawn sky continues. On Tuesday and Wednesday mornings the waning crescent Moon will be near Venus and Jupiter, eyelash thin. The views at right are about an hour before sunrise. That's the star Spica in Virgo closer to the horizon, and Mars is rising just behind, maybe lost in the dawn light.
