Nice info. easy to navigate, and the cosmos has always interested me. I took some classes in hs and college.

Can you tell me what this bright object in the sky is? Im in Philadelphia and around 10 it is in the sky towards the West and seems to be moving towards the East. Around 5 am it seems to be in the Northeastern skies? It is very bright and sometimes low in the sky. Is this Venus?

In the evenings in the west we'd be looking at Jupiter, in the mornings in the east however that would be Venus.

I LIVE IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA AND I USED MY IPHONE STARMAP APP. AND COULD SEE VENUS LOWER LEFT OF MOON AND JUST ABOVE THE MOON THERE WAS A BRIGHT LIGHT THAT MY STARMAP HAD NO ANSWER FOR. I VIDEO TAPED IT FOR ABOUT 30-40 MIN. I PUT IT ONTO MY COMPUTER AND USING VLC PLAYER I ZOOMED IN AND PAUSED AND WENT FRAME BY FRAME AND COULD SEE MOONLIGHT SHOWN BEHIND IT. SO IT MUST HAVE BEEN CLOSER THAN THE MOON,OR THE MOONLIGHT WOULD HAVE GONE IN FRONT OF IT. FRAME BY FRAME IT LOOKED LIKE A METALIC BALL WITH BLACK CIRCLE AND OVAL SHAPES. WHICH MAY OR MAYNOT HAVE BEEN LIGHT DISTORTION.I'M NOT SURE WHAT IT WAS BUT IT LOOKED ABOUT 1/8 OF THE MOONS SIZE ,AND IF IT WAS JUPITER THEN MY STARMAP SHOULD HAVE SHOWN THAT, BUT IT DID NOT.

Tonight we are seeing a 'star' on both west and east side of almost half moon. Venus and Jupiter??
