It’s an all female crew tomorrow at dawn. Look low in the northeastern sky starting about an hour and a half before sunrise and the first thing you’ll notice is the lunar crescent filled out with ample earthshine. To its left will shine radiant Venus, the brightest planet in the sky. Both Venus and the moon or Luna have deep mythological roots. Venus was the Roman goddess of love and beauty, while Luna was the female complement of the sun. She rode a chariot wearing a crescent-shaped crown on her head.
