Re: venus

Is that the particularly bright 'star' I've noticed for the past few nights (the clear ones anyway) when walking the dog (somewhere southish-eastish at around 11pm) or is that something else (please excuse my complete ignorance on this)?

Re: venus

Google Sky Map app is good for star/planet spotting.
South East around 11pm would probably be Neptune.

It could be a number of objects including; Mars, Jupiter, Sirius (brightest star), Rigel or Betelgeuse in Orion.
But though its unlikely to be Neptune which even under good conditions is very faint, the bright moon at this time will hide it, and anyway its not currently in the South at that time of day, by that time its probably set in the west. Uranus is also near to setting but also very faint.
Venus is not currently on view either in the morning or evening.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
