Venusian morning

While up early today collecting Christmas presents that needed signing for from our "local" post depot, I spotted a particularly bright Morning Star ...


One tripod later, and I knocked up a time-lapse of its rise, then washout, against the backdrop of that of the sun ...

According to the astronomy app we use, Saturn is currently just a little further along the ecliptic than Venus, but there was no sign of it this morning. It's possibly just a little too faint to be seen against sunrise.
