Hi, I know nothing about stars apart from being able to point out Orions belt! A couple of weeks back I noticed a bright star (?) to the right of Orion's belt and another star (?) to the side of it, that over the days has moved to below it and then further and further below it. I have been really curious as to what it is, anyone got any idea's?
the bright one is Venus, the one below it is Jupiter
Oooh fab, thanks for that. Might have just started an interest in star gazing!
The one below Venus is Jupiter and is much further away. Although Jupiter's not as bright as Venus, it's actually bigger than all the other planets put together.
If you look at Jupiter through binoculars, 10x50's are best, you can actually also see its 4 moons.
I have none but I may just invest in some
Are 10x50's a good all rounder or would I be best to pay a little more?
