I saw the exact same thing last night when I was on my way home from work. I thought the same thing too - it looked like an inverted cross.
The bright star on the left was cool, I think it might have been Venus, but it could have been Jupiter. I would have to check my starcharts.
The coolest alignment I ever saw was the night Hale-Bopp, Mars, and the moon were in in a big huge triangle. I think it was the night of a lunar
eclipse as well.
Keep watching the skies!
