I'm in NSW. Can't say exactly where, but I don't see anything weird near the moon. Is it visible now?

I am in te Northern Hemisphere (UK), and, in the past few days, you could clearly see Jupiter next to the Moon and it was extremely bright too. I think it could be Jupiter what you are referring to, but I am not sure.

I saw the exact same thing this morning in Western Canada, except it was on the bottom left side of the moon,



i think we can all agree it was clearly aliens

Jupiter. And it looked lovely tonight. Download a program called Stellarium. It's a wonderful tool. The Mrs uses it all the time.

This morning at about 6:30am here in miami I noticed what looked to be a bright star to the lower left of the moon.
I assumed it was the ISS.
After I dropped off my kids I noticed that the star had moved to the upper left of the moon.

Pretty quick movement for a star.

I'm assuming ISS or other large object.

I'm in Victoria, Australia, and start to see the moon at about 8-9pm'ish atm, havent seen anything too close to the moon in the last few days, unless of course your talking about what looks to be the brightest star in the sky atm(and may have been for the last year or so), which Im under the assumption its one of our planets?

I go outside to have a smoke and this star/planet or something similar was pretty bloody huge almost this time last year, at least twice as big as any other star, and to be honest I'd say would have been more like 4 times brighter/larger to the eye than the brightest star in the sky at the time, I'm not sure if it is the same planet that is near the moon atm. It probably isnt because last year I wouldnt see it rise from the east about 5am'ish (a couple of hours before dawn) and it was huge, when I first saw it I thought wtf is that, alot bigger than the planet near the moon atm.

Slightly off topic a bit, also in the last couple of years I've spotted what looks like moving stars, at least one every month, I know I'm not the only one too. These 'moving stars' arent the brightest 'star' in the sky or even close for that matter, so I'm pretty sure they are not satellites or the space-station, they dont move like UFO's either though, their velocity seems constant(they can move from one side of the horizon to the other in about 10 mins, but sometimes they just seem to disappear, no their not shooting stars lol) and they seem to be ridiculously high in the sky, they're not fighter planes(none that they've let the public know about anyway) and they are definitely not passenger aircraft. Due to the fact that they dont move like UFO's I'm leaning towards them being government craft that incorporate technology that they have yet to tell us about. Wish I had a nice telescope and camera to get some footage of them, I tried with iphone and video camera but they are too crappy to pick them up, in fact you can hardly see a single star through them at all, lol.

Although I cannot say exactly what you are seeing in the sky in Australia, I can say the brightest object in the sky here on the East Coast of the USA is Jupiter. From my perspective it is to the east over the ocean and sometimes appears near the moon. It is extremely bright and white as you say. It does not blink so I know it is a planet. If you have access to a telescope I have been told you can see four of Jupiters moons as they move across it's face. Hope that helps.

It is definitely Jupiter. I too have seen it right near the moon over the past few nights. It is quite big, bright and dazzling isn't it.

I'm in South Australia, and yeah its pretty bright, but I have to agree with the Jupiter scenario.
I've watched it for a bit and it's pretty stationary from my neck of the woods, so I call it a planet.

Its pretty neat to see a planet near the moon with the naked eye like that, but I kid you not this star/planet that was out around summer last year was at a good 4 times brighter/larger than that. I never looked into what it actually was, when I first saw it I stared at it waiting for it to move lol, thought it was a UFO, but when it had gradually moved with allthe other stars when I went out for a smoke an hour later I thought meh, no UFO cant be bothered looking up what it is.

For what its worth, I too saw this object here in america, I live in the southwest, and saw it about 3 hours ago. I did look at it through binoculars and it did look like it a dark shape on each side, like wings. I think it was probably a satellite or something, but with all the strange things happening in the sky lately, I honestly don't know, but will be keeping a closer eye on the skies though. Thanks and have great day. Edit - Im going with the conclusion that it was jupiter as well, but you never know...
