Tonight's Sky for September 5: Venus Meets Regulus

Fall may be right around the corner, but the predawn sky will offer one the opportunity to catch one of spring's brightest stars partnered up with the brightest planet in the solar system. To see the show, go out about a half hour before sunrise and look low, very low in the East. The good news is that Venus shouldn't be too hard to spot as it is the third brightest object in the sky and it is very close to blue Regulus, alpha Leo, which will require binocular aid to spot against the brightening dawn sky.
