A dawn sky to enjoy!

As well as a bright transit of the ISS this morning there was a beautiful alignment of the crescent Moon and three planets: Mercury, Venus and Jupiter. It wasn't possible to photograph Mercury, but the others made a terrific spectacle in the south-eastern sky. Tomorrow, if clear, it will be even better, with the Moon nuzzling in between Jupiter and Venus (Apart from the Moon and Sun, the brightest objects in the sky!)
