Roll out of bed early, and check out that AMAZINGLY BRIGHT PLANET emerging from the glow where the Sun is about to rise. Watch the sunrise consume it, and be reminded that all day long, Venus is actually right above you, just not quite bright enough to compete with all that light in the air.
The planet Venus reaches greatest eastern elongation of 45.8 degrees from the Sun. This is the best time to view Venus since it will be at its highest point above the horizon in the morning sky. Look for the bright planet in the eastern sky before sunrise.
