I've noticed there are a few stars/planets that are showing themselves very brightly right now.
Last night when I came in, I opened up Stellarium to see what they were, and it was Venus, Jupiter, Rigel, and Procyon. Sirius was still on the
horizon, but would have also showed up extra bright, but it was cold out there, so I didn't go back out to look.
If it's clear tonight again, I'll check again, those are just the ones I remember from last night.
They're all showing so big and bright, they almost seem like they've gotten closer, or it's easier to see through our atmosphere these days
