Jupiter and Venus before the Sunrise

So yesterday morning was a pretty neat experience… Quite a beautiful sight as well. I had read on Sunday night before bed that Jupiter and Venus will be the closest together in the night sky that they have been in years. Less than half a degree apart, I think I read, and around 5:30am. Yesterday was the day they were closest, though they can been seen together in the sky all of this week. I was lucky enough to see this when I woke up in the morning. I remembered what I had read, and so I snapped a quick photo with my phone. It’s not great, but you can definitely pick out Jupiter and Venus. Very cool.
