Not a tale but Venus is very bright in the morning sky these days. Some people say that when it's this bright, it can be seen all through the day.
I have never seen it after sunrise - but I have never tried very hard - but it seems plausible. It stays visible when dawn is breaking, long after all the stars have disappeared. It is the third brightest celestial object after the sun and moon so why not?
Someday, as god is my witness, I will see Venus in the sky in the middle of the day.
