Looking at moon tonight, to the east/ southeast, is that a star or a planet? I know where Venus is located but wondered about this one!
If you're asking about the bright light to the lower left of the (Harvest) moon you're probably looking at Jupiter. Uranus was just above Jupiter but sometimes gets lost in Jupiter's brilliance. Sometimes those two planets are so close in our view they appear to be one large bright planet. Larger and brighter than Venus. It's an awesome sight.
Just after sunset, the sun is in the western sky and this object is in the eastern sky. If this object were Venus, then the alignment would be:
Sun - Earth - Venus
But Venus is closer to the sun than the Earth is to the sun. Therefore, it's not Venus.
And it's not Mars because Mars is red.
So Jupiter makes sense.
