Summer begins tomorrow, and if you get up early to greet the new season, there’ll be a pretty pairing of the moon and the planet Venus to look at in the predawn sky. Go outside between about 3:30 am and sunrise and look off to the east. You’ll find the old crescent moon not too far above the horizon. Right next to the moon, a bit off to the east of it, you should also find a brilliant star, which turns out is not a star at all, but the planet Venus. The moon is among the stars of Pisces the Fish, and Venus is just next door in Aries the Ram, but neither of these constellations has any especially bright stars, so the moon and Venus have that part of the sky pretty much to themselves. Because we can see Venus in the predawn sky, it’s also called a morning star. If you miss seeing Venus and the moon tomorrow, you can also find them on Wednesday before sunrise, but now the moon will be below and to the east of Venus.
