Wonder if anyone can help answer this short question..
I live In London and recently have noticed a really bright light in the sky. It is almost like a big star but really outshines the few stars we can actually see here.. I've never noticed a star this bright before..
Maybe it is just a star but my feeling is it's probably a planet.. Are there any that are currently close enough to earth to be seen with the naked eye, or could it be a satellite?
Any answers on this would be grateful..

Not again.

Please download Stellarium and enter your details into it and you can check on what it may be. It is a free application and shows all the stars and planets and their relative position in the night sky.
If after you have done this and still don't have an answer please comeback with more details of the time, your location and direction of the light. Photos if you can.

My money is on a planet. You can always see planets with the naked eyes, Jupiter and Venus being the likely suspects.

I've noticed that here in Aberdeen.If I look hard it looks like two lights very close together.It is in the South East sky at approx. 9p.m.I been told that it could be Jupiter.If it is it looks so much bigger and brighter than the stars(which I suppose it should be as Jupiter is a lot closer).

On a clear night here in the high desert of Nevada, you can sometimes make out a couple of Jupiter's moons with the naked eye. I have seen up to three without binoculars. But with a good set of binoculars the moons are easy to see

Mr. L. if you can operate a computer, you would do yourself a great favor to find out which objects are visible w/ naked eye. Many here recommend Google Sky, but I really like Heavens Above.
You can customize them for your location (you need to find out where you live) and then you will discover that there are thousands of very interesting, non-Nibiru objects that people ought to be familiar with in the sky.

B.S., if you are our "Spec Ops" specialist and do not know what planets can be seen from Earth, we are in real trouble. Were you recruited, or did you volunteer?

For both of you and anyone else: PLEASE learn the names, locations and relative sizes of the known planets.

Even ancient people who never had the benefit of youtube, Barney and Sesame Street knew that several "wandering stars" were different from the rest. Some even figured out that they followed regular patterns and could be counted on to be in certain locations at certain times; like Venus as the "morning star" and sometimes the "evening star."

They gave them names to help to identify them by their characters:
Venus was beautiful, Jupiter was dominant, and Mars was angry.

Really, guys and girls, everyone capable of posting here should at least TRY to learn the 5 easily-viewed planets, and at least a couple of important stars and constellations, like Orion, Taurus, Ursa Minor and Major, Polaris, Betelgeuse, Antares and Sirius.

You will feel much more comfortable about looking up at night, and might find it inspiring. You owe it to yourself to at least try; you might really like it and benefit your friends and families.

If you read the post correctly, you will see I live in central London.. Unfortunatly due to the light pollution of a 24 hour city with a population of nearly 8 million people, you cannot see many stars, only a few of the brightest and I mean very few.. Now if I lived In the countryside where you can see many thousand, I'm sure I would have taken more of an interest In learning the various stars and planets..
The reason I left a thread here is because I noticed this object only yesterday and today on my way to work at 5.45 am, and as I am using a a phone to make these posts and threads it is not that easy for me to use some of the sites suggested right now.. I was hoping someone else from London who had noticed the same object, and may have already researched it, would have seen the thread and answered the question for me..
I will certainly take on board some of the suggestions left here, and later tonight when I get home, I will research it myself and find out what it is..
Thank you for suggesting a site for me but your smart ass comments are unnecessary...

Some things in the sky look bigger than usual also. I downloaded stellarium, got my exact gps location to look up what is rising in my eastern sky in the mornings, about an hour before the sun. It turned out to be Venus, which was surprising, only because I've looked at Venus before, verifying that it was in fact, Venus.

Now Venus is HUGE on the horizon, and is yellow, before it always looked blue. What a different look. I am assuming the much larger size is because of our earth wobble, or precession. As it goes higher in view it gets smaller, but it starts out looking larger than I've ever seen even Jupiter. HUGE. Possibly yellow because of the sun rising behind it.

I live in the USA, so I don't know what your seeing, maybe it is a planet. I'm new here, your thread caught my eye. I was curious if the bright light is a daily thing, or does it skip mornings, or way off time. I wish you luck.
