Tonight's Sky for September 26: Jupiter Rises 4 Hours Before the Sun

Jupiter, 5th planet from the Sun and 4th brightest object in the sky, is now rising 4 hours before the Sun come this morning, which means that it is truly now realistically possible to catch the king of the planets under a dark sky if you get up early enough. To see the planet, simply go out in the early morning and look East (look high if you go out at dawn). As for finding the planet, it's easy as, discounting the now horizon-hugging Venus, it's easily the brightest thing in the Eastern sky before sunrise.
