anyone in Virginia seeing mega bright object very close to moon?
I am in Reston Virginia. There is an incredibly bright object very close to the moon. No stars anywhere around. Lots of cloud cover. But this thing is bright. Anyone seeing it? Never seen anything that right that close to the Moon before...

I am here in florida and actually came here to see if anyone else was seeing it as well. Been there with it since dusk and has been moving with the moon this entire time. Once I get home I want to take our high powered scoop out and look closer

It's Jupiter, and this happens to be the day that Earth is closest to it so it looks very bright. Enjoy it, don't be stressed about it!

It's called a planet...

All four of Jupiter’s large Galilean moons — Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto — are also well presented tonight. While you’re looking for the GRS, note that moons Io and Europa pass each other at 8:09pm GMT, separated by just three arcseconds. The changing relative positions of the moons will be fascinating to watch at high powers — if seeing permits, naturally.

On a personal note, my son thought it was the moon's moon

in 2016

1 + 6 = 7
