    I believe that you're seeing the planet Jupiter.

    btw...I'm seeing Jupiter in the East after sunset.

    Oscar, if you read the article in the link that I put up, I think you'll note that the planet is Jupiter, no???

    Maybe I'm reading it incorrectly, but that's the planet I'm seeing.

    If you have some good binoculars you'd get a fairly good view I suspect.
