For early rising tweeters, you might wanna go outside right now (6:45 am)
and get a load of that earthshine. Just look SE

Earthshine is the light of the sun (coming up soon!) reflecting off the
Earth and lighting up the Moon - best seen during a crescent moon, when the
darker part of the moon face has that subtle glow . It's pretty cool.

By the way, the bright shiny object just below the Moon is the planet
Venus, sometimes referred to as the "morning star".
