What is the bright star next to the Moon?
Although the bright object might look like a star at first glance, some stargazers have guessed correctly: it is a planet.
More specifically, it is the brightest planet visible from Earth – Venus.
Astronaut Chris Hadfield tweeted: “Venus and the Moon, beautiful, timeless perspective this morning.”
After the Sun and the Moon, Venus is the brightest object visible from our planet.
