Star size? If so, then it's probably a satellite.
If it's bigger than that, then maybe the ISS?

If it's passing v-e-r-y slowly it would be Venus.

You want to get off the laptop and grab the camera!

I don't think its the I.S.S as this moves across the sky quite quick and would go by the moon in seconds, but could be another satellite.

Just read the last post. I'm sure there is a Venus and Moon conjunction tonight so that is probably it.

I am in Utah and just got home. I noticed it too when I looked at the moon. It is very bright. probably just Venus?

That link you posted says that by the end of March Venus will not be able to be seen in the sky anymore until 2010.

I didn't know that. I wonder what they will call that bright lite that people have been saying is either Venus or Sirius. I suppose then it will be "narrowed" down, won't it?

8:31 and its still there, I assume its a planet since a satalite moves faster, I did take a pic, its about a quarter moon.

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.


Evening sky. Venus will be visible in the morning sky beginning in early April.

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!

I saw a bright object just to the right of the moon tonight on my way to pick up my wife from work.

I figured it was venus . . . and immediately thought of ATS


It was an awesome sight, though. Almost gave me the chills

You know, a total inability to spell in an age of integrated browser spellcheckers does not fill me with confidence of the value of this thread. Deny Ignorance. Educate Yourself.

I borrowed a camera, as i am not at home.
Battery was dead, so I charged it for about 5 minutes.
I'm not familiar with the camera. But I've uploaded 2 pics for you.

Venus/Moon Conjunction.
You can right click, then view image to see the whole thing.




No image manipulation at all. other than re-sized by photobucket.

Wow, that sounds like an interesting gathering.

Spacedoubt, great shot! Same to colt121!

Thanks for posting them up!

Can someone link a sight/site to see the above in real time?

OK I know it's Venus and all. But I just popped out to look at 7:38 pm PST for a few minutes. I'm in Southern California on the coast, so it is kinda hazy/foggy here.

I see the crescent moon in the sky kind of blurred from the fog and haze, but Venus is crystal clear in it's illumination. It's like the moon has a slight blur filter on it and Venus has a sharpen filter on it. I know that's a bad example, but it makes your eyes think Venus is below the haze and fog in the sky since it is so sharp and the haze and fog aren't affecting that sharpness and the brightness .

Thanks!
I wish I had my gear with me, it would have been a little better.
it's interesting to note the movement of the moon, which is opposite to the direction that it is setting. so Venus now appears lower in the sky, than the moon. Even just 30 minutes later.
