So that small star below is Spica and the other pretty bright one to the left is Arcturas. Not that I'm a genius or anything... just got that from the net.



When I look at it the small star is almost as close to be attached to it..

Currently, the brightest object in the southeastern sky is Jupiter....about 10-12 degrees from the horizon. And if it has a moon that you can see, that's it.

I guess it has to be Jupiter. Very bright!!


Yeah... Venus has gone to the North now and can't be seen unless you are further North of course...


"The night sky in March 2017: a disappearing planet....Venus Goodbye to all this: dazzling Venus is set to disappear from our evening sky later in March. A few gaps in the gloomy weather over past weeks may have provided opportunity to spot brilliant Venus shining away in the southwest shortly after sunset."

It's actually more West now from here, but clear as a bell this evening even in a bright, very clear early part of the pale sunset. It will soon be more North though and will be an early morning viewing.

If you can see one of Jupiter's moons with your named eye, your vision must be really, really good!

AH, you name your eyes too Mandy....thank goodness, I thought I was the only one....

My left eye is called Bluebeam and my right is called Hazelpie.

What are yours called?

And if you can see Jupiter's Moons with the "Naked" eye in England, then you have very good eyesight......Like Telescopic rated eyes.
I didn't even know you could see stars in England.......just clouds.

So Venus is always within 44 degrees of the sun

I like the plow......the Little Dipper looks like a plow.

Jupiter is my favorite thing to look at in the night sky. With even a half decent telescope, you can see its cloud bands, which is an amazing sight and will hook you on using a telescope instantly if you're anything like me lol. Likewise with Saturn's rings.

Peace.

There's an app called "sky view" ....they have a free one, and a more advanced one you can pay for... both are great at identifying stars and planets...download it to your phone, and point your phone at the planet in question ....works really good ! It will even show you what's in the other side of the earth .
