What’s that bright light in the sky, above London? UFO??
Look, see it? Quite high, about SWish.
It’s moving very slowly. I don’t have owt powerful enough to zoom in on it. Anyone out there with something to get a look at it? Or have any idea what it is? It’s been there for some time, now.
Sattelite? Bit too slow, I think. Comet? Planet?
Bloody Martians trying to bypass immigration??

Yes! And pale gold in colour, although this could be the pollution. and I’ve seen satellites before; they are nowhere near as bright, and move more quickly, perceptible in just a short viewing.
Venus? Ooh, how exciting!
Thanks, druidh and Cheesy!

Found some info:
Venus is a brilliant object setting in the West more than four hours after the Sun at the beginning of February. The planet resembles a pure white non-twinkling aeroplane light.
Through a telescope the planet shows a crescent phase. Venus is now approaching the Earth so it will become larger. However, at the same time its phase gets smaller. These two effects mean that Venus is at its brightest on 19th when it will be 16 times brighter than Sirius, the brightest star. This star is visible in the South East and can be found by following the three stars in the belt of Orion downwards.
Venus continues at its best evening apparition for 2009 but is now beginning to move in towards the evening twilight. By the end of the month, the planet will be setting three hours after sunset.
