Venus rising.

At my normal post this morning just making sure the sun rises on time, when I saw Venus high and bright in the sky. This morning at sunrise there was an eastern hairline moon rising, with Venus  and Saturn. Due to the trees being in the way I could not see the moon. On Thursday evening just after sunset there will be a western hairline moon with Venus, on the western horizon, and I should be able to photograph them both.
