If you're awake and reading this before sunrise, throw on your coat and step outside for a beautiful sight. The waning crescent moon - the barest sliver of our favorite natural satellite - hangs low on the eastern horizon just a few degrees below bright Venus. The show starts after moonrise (about 5:30 a.m. in Baltimore). The pair climb together as dawn approaches and fade into the sunrise at 7:27 a.m. The bright "star" lower and to their left is Jupiter.
