That's Venus, it is particularly bright tonight isn't it... Just to the left of Venus and up a bit is Jupiter (I think!).

There's a great app called Star Walk if you have a suitable phone/tablet to use it on.

Very pretty was looking at the earlier, been watching them seperate for a few weeks an inner and outer planet in the same area of the sky is impressive.
Expect loads of moron's reporting UFO sightings from Venus soon

Uranus is very big at the moment, not easy to spot, bit of a black hole to be honest.Kiss his arse

Be honest, LB, you couldn't find Uranus with both hands and a map!

They're both very bright again tonight, as is the full moon, great night or a moonlit ride!
