Such a pretty site.  (By the way, we have clear skies and sunshine comin' our way today).  I was outside looking at the beautiful clear skies, not cold or freezing, which is unusual now when we have the clear skies.  We have had a few nice days and there has been cold, crispy frosty mornings, but not today.  Cool, but not icy.  Nice.

I was looking at the moon on the southeastern horizon, pretty, as I said in the topic, 16% of full.  There is a bright star shining beside the moon, at approximately the 11:00 position.  Beautiful, bright as bright can be.  If only I was into astronomy, I would know the name of this heavenly body.  Anyone know which star it is?  So bright, so pretty, and brings that smile to my face that only the beauties and wonders of our world can bring to me, at this early hour of the day, my time, my peace and quiet, along with my forum friends.  Have a wonderful and beautiful day on this great planet of ours.  Cindi

I am guessing here as I haven't kept up with the moon and stars and planets for awhile. But usually that bright light is the planet Venus.

Depends on what time it was.  Venus is usually visible just after sunset and just before sunrise.  Cindi, can you pm me your actual location and the date and approximate time and I'll fiddle around with my skychart to try to see what was up at that time.

Also read the space station and shuttle was suppose to be quite a spectacle as they departed ways. Don't know if that had anything to do with it.
