What is the bright light near the Moon tonight?

Look above the northeastern horizon near 3am BST (September 15) and you will see a bright source of light neat the Crescent Moon.

The two objects will trail an arch, climbing up into the eastern sky until sunrise.

And although at first glance, the bright light might look like a star, it is actually the planet Venus.

After the Sun and the Moon, the second planet from the Sun is the third brightest object visible from Earth.
