tonight 11/09/10 Venus is putting on a great show over here in north Yorkshire.
it's got to be one of the clearest nights to view this amazing planet.
get outside and enjoy.I'm out in the middle of the country with zero light
pollution and it's a great sight.very very bright.
just thought i would share.

Just been out and spotted it, it didnt take much, it is bright tonight. I also got some great views of jupiter last week, i wouldnt of known what it was if it wasnt for stellarium. I am planning on getting a telescope soon, cant wait to see them and more in a better perspective.

Venus doesn't rise until 11am tomorrow according to my Stellarium...

Did you mean Jupiter?

Edit: Never mind, didn't realise it set at about 8pm tonight. Two and a half hours ago, mind you...

so its jupiter? was just a guess on my part as to me Venus is
one of the only planets that stand out to me but I'm
use to seeing it near the moon this is no where near the moon.
it's putting some light out tho.thanks for the correction folks.
my bad.

Its an easy mistake to make without the ability to check what your looking at. Uranus is hiding just behind it at the minute, you could see it with a telescope but to see it with the naked eye you'll have to wait till early hours for it to just become visible. I recommend you get stellarium, it will help you identify what you see, its free and simple to use.
