The Moon and Venus

Tomorrow morning, April 25th, will see a brilliant Venus paired with a crescent Moon. Look for the pair to rise about 03:41HST to be 30° above the horizon at sunrise. A 15% illuminated Moon will be a nice match for Venus shining brilliantly at -4.1 magnitude. Separation will be about 4&deg.

The following morning, April 26th, will see the Moon much closer to the horizon, over 11° west of the planet.
