Up early tomorrow with the dog? Step outside about 5 a.m. If skies are clear, look east for a fine, slender crescent moon rising just a few degrees north (left) of a brilliant planet Venus. To the right of Venus by the same distance is the bright star Aldebaran - the red eye of the bull in the constellation Taurus. Raise your gaze a similar distance above Aldebaran to find dim Mars.
