If it's passing v-e-r-y slowly it would be Venus.
Moon and Venus Converge Friday Night
for during March Venus will slide rapidly down into the sunset glow and by month's end will disappear from our evening sky until the spring of 2010.

Yea that must be Venus mate but thats still an awesome sight, the moon and planet Venus right next to each other! If you look in the opposite direction there will be a bright star that doen't twinkle much which will be the planet Saturn! To the right and up a bit is another bright star, Regulus, and around this star is Comet Lulin. If you have got some binoculars then have a gander around this star and hopefully you will see a patch of light which is the comet!
