some morning planets (Toronto)

While unpacking and packing gear, I enjoyed the early morning planets...

Venus was incredibly bright. Mars was almost straight overhead. I enjoyed the waning Moon.

Earlier in the week, during an early morning sojourn, I mistook a star near Mars for Saturn. Reviewing my charts or software, I learned it was closer to Venus. I tried to spot it this morning but was unsuccessful.
