What is the planet next to the Moon tonight?

Many stargazers were surprised to learn the bright light near the Moon is not a star but the planet Venus.

After the Sun and the Moon, Venus is the third brightest body in our skies.

US meteorologist Brandon Spinner tweeted: “Excuse the blurry photo, but take a look at the Moon this morning!

“The bright ‘star’ to the right of the Moon is actually #Venus!

“It’ll be visible again tomorrow, but we will have cloud coverage so enjoy it this AM!”
