    On Monday February 18 (President’s Day), Venus will be 1 degree above and to the left of Saturn in the early morning sky. Venus rises at 5:03 AM and will climb to almost twelve degrees above the southeastern horizon by dawn (civil twilight ends at 6:37 AM). Full moon occurs on the following day (Tuesday February 19) and will be the closest and largest apparent diameter moon of 2019 (popularly known as a “supermoon”).
