I was also under the impression it was Jupiter. in fact the other weekend my sister was home and we sat around drinking some whiskey and talking about
all kinds of weird stuff, and I took her outside and made her look at it. She was under the impression it was Venus. Who knows...
Anyway, there are several interesting connections to Jupiter (assuming that's what the object is)
Jupiter in Mythology
to the Babylonians, it represents their god Marduk, and they used it's 12 year orbit to help define their constellations...
it also has connections to Zeus (the king of the Gods) and Thor (hammer-wielding god associated with thunder, lightning, storms, oak trees, strength,
destruction, fertility, healing, and the protection of mankind)
I find it interesting that there has been a ton of crazy storms all over the planet recently, some resulting in some pretty serious flooding, and I've
also noticed a TON of acorns falling from the oak trees (I've been doing yard work for people, and they keep saying how they can't believe how many
acorns there are this year - in reality, I spent over 6 hours just collecting acorns, if this gives you any idea what I'm talking about. The
so-called "acorn mountain" is now already up to my knees, and I'm right around 6 feet tall....
