from Greg at the Las Vegas Astronomical Society:

Well, over time you'll notice Venus getting lower and lower in the morning sky as Jupiter and Saturn continue to get higher each morning.

In the meantime, keep an eye on Mars in the west at sunset. It will be getting lower and lower each night till around June when it disappears. It will then re-appear in the morning sky in October. Around the same time, Venus will appear in the evening sky in the west.

Got this shot last night. I believe Venus is towards the bottom and Saturn is in the middle. I have to check my SkyView app to make sure.

The morning and evenings here are some of the most beautiful I've ever seen. Sunrise is an amazing time of day. Completely turned me into a morning person vs. spending most of my life as a a night owl when I lived back East.

If you're a night owl and still up, take a look at the southern skies and you'll see... from left to right - 1-2-3

1) the Moon, 2) Saturn, 3) Jupiter

No need, you just weren't a real night owl :P I'm often up for sunrise as a night owl, then I go to bed shortly after, so you can enjoy both. Especially when it's summer, it gets light at like 4:45 in the north, so I'm almost never asleep by then. Technically speaking, though, nobody can ever change from a night owl to a morning person as it's built into your chronotype, like any other genetic thing really. People can alter their wakeup and sleep times, they do it all of the time out of necessity, but left to their own devices they would default to their biological nature.

One morning I actually saw the international space station zoom by, pretty cool to watch on a clear morning or night.
Our Weatherman in San Antonio would tell us when we could see the Space Station fly by and give us the degrees. You really have to be watching as it goes by FAST. I loved going out and seeing it go by. You can also go online and find out what time it will be visible in your area. Go to spotthestation.nasa.gov The next sighting will be June 27 4:34 AM It will come 11* South, peak at 27* and disappears 20* East. It will be visible for 4 minutes. It is so cool to see if you have never seen it. This sighting is for here in Las Vegas.

Look to the east and see the Orion constellation rise in the morning - it's been a while. Also, Mercury rising in the east northeast can be seen before sunrise.

You should be able to see Jupiter and Mars to the southeast before sunrise. Today, Mars rose at 3:24 am, and Jupiter at 5:18 am.
