Last night I was searching for the Comet, which I'm still not sure if i spotted. I hear it is dim, so I doubt any of the three objects I will
describe will be it.
Sometime last night, fairly close to midnight here in the mountains of North Carolina, I was looking near the constellation of Orion, I believe to the
South-East or so. I saw a stunningly bright Blue star. I thought it was the comet, because of it's blue color, but as I said before, I hear it is
still fairly dim to the naked eye. But this object was just as bright with the naked eye as it was with binoculars.
The second object was out at the same time, but more east than the other, on the other side of Orion. It was too, extremely bright and a
yellow/orange color... am I safe to assume this was Venus? Or was it too early for it to have been Venus? If it wasn't Venus, then what was it?
The Third object was this morning around 6 am to the East. This one was too exceptionally bright, and a white color. Now I know Venus is called the
Morning Star, so if this was Venus, then that means the previous light I saw was not Venus.
I haven't seen these three objects as bright as they are now, but then again I never noticed them there in the first place because they weren't all
that bright before. Can anyone help me out, or at least help identify even one of them?
