Over the last few nights there has been a very bright light with a smaller dimmer light in the sky that I don't recongize. I think it must be two planets but am not sure. Anybody seen these? Thedimmer light is just to the left and down from the brighter one. Jupiter?

Jupiter on top.
Venus below.
Be sure to look on Sunday and Monday. The moon is joining the party.

There is a really cool free program you can download called Stellarium
that shows you the names of all the stars and planets in the sky.You can download it here

I use it all the time to identify things in the night sky.

Thanks guys! I got all excited when I saw this but then took a step back and thought it must be planets. I learned that here on ATS! Thanks again. Pammyk

When I first saw it Thursday night it seemed very close like it might be some sort of spy object. Like it was looking right at me. My friends had seen it the night before and thought the same thing. We live in a heavy military area here in Virginia. But then I thought "no way" it must be a planet. Was really weird and just wanted to see if anyone else observed it in the sky.
