Hey guys, I've recently noticed a bright light in the West sky, here in Michigan, and I do believe it's a planet because it isn't sparkling like a
star. I was just wondering if anyone knew the name of this planet? I guess it could only be Mars, Jupiter or Saturn, right? I know Venus is in the
South sky, and right now it's just as bright as the planet in the West sky.
I don't have any telescope to check it out and don't really know how to look for something like this on the net. Any help is appreciated.
Btw, are there any decent telescopes under $500 that you'd recommend for someone who's just starting to get into this subject?
