I looked out at 0400 this morning and saw the Crescent Moon looking rather splendid.
You left it a bit late; not only was the sky brightening, there was a lot less cirrus/cirrostratus around an hour earlier.

Looks like Autumn's not far away!
Cygnus past the meridian, Aldebaran well up in the East, .... Yeah, it comes quick as the 4 mins difference between the sidereal and solar days add on to the rapid advance of dawn.
