When looking at objects in the sky at night, we no longer have the same visual cues that our brains/eyes are used to. Under conditions like this, as Phage has explained, it's impossible to judge distance, size, or speed with any accuracy.

Venus will disappear from the evening sky in mid March.
She'll start being visible before dawn in early April.

I'm from the north east of England and have been watching the sky, and every couple of nights there is a quite bright light in the sky that moves east to west and I would like to know what it is, I don't know if it's a star a planet or what but it's the brightest light in the sky, I've used my binoculars to look at it but they are not much good, I'm thinking of getting myself a telescope but don't know much about them and don't wanna pay over the top prices, help from fellow ATS members would be nice on the light and telescopes
got your picture as my desktop, hope you don't mind

Late last night around 1:45 am i was looking outside by bedroom
window checking out the deer coming down the street.
Just then i noticed this object in the sky coming towards my house.
All lit up in the sky. As soon it got closer i could make out it shape
by the lights on the object.
The lights made a diamond shape with two lights in the middle
which were blinking. I called the airport and there was no flights
departing at that time.
The city i live in has a air national guard. But, would they be flying
that late of night. Ive seen jet fighters and cargo planes but nothing
like i saw last night.
Anybody have a idea what i saw?
The lights were so bright unlike a commercial airliner.
