The bright planets Venus and Jupiter will be less than a degree apart on 
Thursday and Friday morning (Nov. 4 & 5).  Sunrise is at 6:50 a.m., so the best 
time to look is between 5:30 and 6:00 a.m.
 
Here's a NASA Science News article with sky maps for the next several mornings:

Next Tuesday and Wednesday (Nov. 9 and 10), Venus and Jupiter will be farther 
apart, but the crescent moon will join the grouping.
