Default Bright Star, on the horizon ?

Pete, is that Jupiter? I can't get a fix on it with my new software. It sure ain't Saturn. But its big.
Its big Pete.

Argent. Just saw your post this morning. If it was big and bright, it probably was Jupiter......but the time is wrong. Jupiter is due to be in the sky an hour or two before sunrise at this time of year.
Check out this website for details and times:
