I went out at 6:01 AM EDT this morning and was greeted with a setting Jupiter in the far dusky sky. I shot some iPhone images, and in one of them a bird majestically lined up attractively with Jupiter. See pix below. Recognizing that sunrise local time was 6:07 AM EDT, I went out again at 6:11 AM EDT and was easily able to spot Jupiter technically in the daytime (i.e., while the sun was up)!

It looks like you picked up the Belt of Venus in your photos too.
