I noticed something out of my window tonight. It is due east low on the horizon (maybe 10-15 degrees). It looks like a very out of focus star. It
is about 15 times larger than any star I've seen. I trained my telescope on it and I could not focus in on it. I thought it might be the moon, but
the chart my brother found says the moon hasn't risen yet and it would be the smallest moon I've ever seen.
Its not moving (at least over the last 15 mins).
Can anyone else see it. I can't focus with my telescope so I think its far away.
Could it be a supernova or something?
I live in Indiana, south of Indianapolis.
