One more problem with the Jupiter theory. right now in order to see the moon you have to look south. the setting sun is to the right. if the sun was behind me, then I could maybe accept the planet theory because a planet would be reflecting the light coming from behind me, back to me. But in this case, the light from the sun would have to be hitting jupiter and bouncing at a right angle to me. When I looked at the 'planet' I saw a perfect circle. If it was Jupiter, it should be showing a half circle JUST LIKE THE MOON!. Once last comment. Jupiter isn't white. I saw a white ball with a smaller red dot that disappears and then reappears.

On a clear night in Nevada you can sometimes see three of Jupiter's moons without binoculars.
how so Zorgon?
Is it just me or is there 'change in the weather' here at ATS lately?
