This is Venus near the star Spica in Virgo, as both rose together in the dawn twilight as morning stars, on November 15, 2018.

The trapezoid pattern of the constellation of Corvus is at right.

Light cloud added the natural glows and enlarged Venus, so it really does look “big” here!

This is a stack of four 10-second exposures for the ground to smooth noise and one 4-second for the sky, each layer processed to bring out the colours of the sky and ground separately. All at ISO 400 and f/2.5 with the Sigma 50mm lens and Canon 6D MkII.
