Miltonlava and Feeling in AUS: I believe what you are seeing in the western (US) sky each night is the Planet Venus, although Jupiter is close by,
bright too, just not int this pic - Venus is often mistaken for a UFO by uneducated observers. This is Not a Star. People sometimes see it shimmering
and believe it is moving slightly, due to cloud movement and or just plain disorientaion as you stare at it. Lava, you took a great pic of it using
some magnification and you picked up a distant star in the background too. Keep looking to the heavens, you may see something really moving someday -
if it changes speed or direction, you may have something special there.
Venus is real Close to Earth now, quite bright in the western sky. Good viewing,
