If you wake up early on Monday, be sure to look east. About 45 minutes before sunrise, which is around 5:15 AM, Jupiter and Venus will be extremely close together. They'll be separated by less than a degree or so.

The pre-dawn show will be the closest pass between two planets all year. For Jupiter and Venus in particular, it's the closest they've been since 2000.

If you take any good pictures of the pair, please e-mail us: weather@fox44now.com.
