Hey all. I usually stargaze while I am out smoking my cigarettes at night. Tonight, in the eastern sky I honestly thought for a moment I was seeing
a UFO. I have never seen a star or planet so damn bright.
Is this Jupiter that I am seeing? I live just barely outside of St. Louis, MO.
Has/does anyone else see this?
If it IS Jupiter, why is it so big and bright tonight?
edit to add: It is so bright, that I can't see any stars in that patch of sky--like it is drowning out starlight.
