I was looking at the moon tonight and noticed a bright star to the bottom right of it. Im in the UK.
I used Google Star maps and discovered according to it that this star was in fact Neptune. I got out my telescope to have a good look at it. I was
shocked at how easy it was to track it, many times before I have tried to look at planets in our system but they move so quick that its hard to keep
track, but in the case Neptune if thats what it was appeared to be sat there not moving.
That was earlier, 3 hours later I went back outside and noticed that even though the moon was in a different place the planet I had seen before was
still just off to the bottom right of the moon.
It was then I got thinking to myself surely shouldnt have this planet moved off by now? Why is it still fixed to the bottom right of the moon?
Maybe this is normal and im making a fool of myself, but i thought it was weird that by now this planet shouldnt be in the exact same place to the
moon as it was earlier.
