    Saturn was there, too. It is not as bright as the others and you probably couldn't see it with the Salt Lake lights, but it was easily visible in darker areas.

    One of the unheralded benefits of legacy print media is that it got me out on the sidewalk early this morning to pick up the papers. You folks getting your news online indoors missed something cool.

    BTW, Saturn was also up there nearby and easily visible.

    Yes I saw the conjunction and guess what, as long as that wanning crescent moon is up, you can use a building or your hand to block the Sun, look up and to the right of the top of the crescent moon and you'll see Venus in the daytime!
