Tuesday morning, August 19th the two bright planets Jupiter and Venus, now separated by a little more than 1o still dominate the morning skies at sunrise. Jupiter will have moved to its closest to M-44, the Beehive Cluster as it comes within about 1o. For an interesting contrast the 4th magnitude star Asellus Australis one of the brighter stars in the constellation Cancer the Crab.
This part of the early morning sky contains most of the northern hemisphere winter season stars as this graphic shows.
