This is what you see in the western sky when you fall asleep some time after 3 a.m., wake up sometime before 6 a.m., take the garbage to the curb, and decide to go for a walk because you are wide awake. (The sun hadn't yet risen above the mountains in the east.)

The pic below was taken nine days prior, in the western sky as the sun was making its descent towards the mountains in the west/northwest.
