Eastern Star in Morning SKy

When I go to work at 6:15 am in the morning I have been seeing a bright star in the eastern sky.  Several weeks ago it seemed to be straight east but now it has appeared to be moving south so that it is now more east, southeast.

Could this be a planet like Saturn or Mars?  The only other star in the sky at that time of day has been a fainter star in the southeastern sky.

By 6:45 am the sun rises and they disappear from view.

All of the sky maps I can find appear to deal only with the evening sky and I can't seem to find any morning sky maps.

I live in Indianapolis, Indiana (USA)
