Caption: Saturn is to the upper left of the moon. Venus is lower left and Mercury is lower left of Venus just barely visible in the pre-dawn sky. There's another star between the moon and Venus. I have some earlier photos that show all those planets better, but the moon is overexposed in them and not visible as a crescent. Perhaps tomorrow morning with the very thinnest crescent moon I can capture, closer to sunrise....
