Star(s), Planet or UFO

Postby stephe03 » Nov 18th, 2012, 5:37 am

Does anybody else see that unusually bright object(s) in the Northeastern sky. Have not seen it move and appears (through binoculars) to be a circle of stars. What is it? Don't recall ever seeing it before.

You are probably looking at the planet Venus. It is the brightest object in the pre-dawn southeast sky.
I think, therefore we are different.

How about the Corona Borealis? Beats me. Just guessing.

I like this program (its FREE!) for checking out what's in the sky ... http://www.stellarium.org/
