I apologize for the lack of content in this thread (I know that is rightfully frowned upon) I'am just curious as to what the large "star" is to the right of our moon tonight.
I have seen it before yet it seems to brighter than usual.

I would post a link but..looking outside should do the trick.

Yes, Jupiter is really bright.

If you have a smart phone, download the Google Sky Map app. It is indispensible for queries like that.

Get the skyview ap for your phone. It will tell you what every heavenly body is

On that ap, you can even see through Earth, and see where every planet and star is, even during daytime. Its a fun ap. Go get it now!

Jupiter , Saturn and Earth are all on the same side of the Sun. About as close as we all get.

Get out your binoculars and you can even see some of jupiters moons. After all it has 79 of them in fact there is discussions that we will be able to see 2 moons collide. Valetudo (one of Jupiter's moons) is driving down the highway on the wrong side of the road. So it's just a matter of time before it hits another moon.

Thanks.. I notice Saturn is pink on that site. Would that indicate that it is currently visible?

I'l be damned... I am looking at That star "Jupiter" threw the binocs and I see a solid white light and a "fuzz" of rainbow like "unformed" rings. It's a barrage of lights. very dim but evident. Are those the gases?

Absolutely.
Anything in orbit in the ecliptic outside Earth's orbit, on the side of the Sun that the Earth occupies, is visible near the Zenith all night. Daytime as well (Morning, Evening), if you have the equipment.

I like the fact we are presently so close to these 2 gravity giants presently. We can feel safer. They are comet and asteroid suckers.

So being near the chaos may prevent us from a strike? It does make sense. would the electromagnetic field of oncoming interference actually activate earth's natural survival skills?

Orbiting bodies that get near Jupiter or Saturn, that would also cross Earth Orbit usually get taken out by them before they become a threat to us. Most travel in extreme elliptical orbits. Not in all cases, but we are here because of them.

No electromagnetic field would deter an asteroid or comet. It would be like blowing on a freight train.
