After our Sun, the brightest things in our celestial view are (in order) the Moon, Venus and Jupiter. During February's 1st dawn, it was Jupiter leading the way over the Roosevelt Arch in Yellowstone National Park, with Venus in second place and a 9% crescent Moon pulling up the morning. The quote across the top of the Roosevelt Arch is from the act that established Americas National Parks, reading, "For the Benefit and Enjoyment of the People." Now THAT was a bright idea.
