This morning’s sunrise / moonrise

Did you happen to look to the east this morning just before sunrise? The crescent moon and Venus were practically kissing each other. They were less than an inch apart.

The sky here in Tampa was crystal clear; the sun not yet up, and the moon and Venus were brilliant white. The earthshine reflecting back on the dark part of the moon allowed you to see the entire disk.

Beautiful.
