Can you help me identify this?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone this is my second post, my first was in the introdcution forum room. I'm very new to this but last night I went out with my new Lyra Refractor scope & cheap digital camera.

I took this photo:


It was (measured by my compass) SE in direction & quite high in the sky at 2340. Sorry I can't be more exact but I'm still learning! I was just wondering if anyone can help me as it was bright blue & seemed to be reflecting light; is it a planet?

I'm still learning star charts etc, if anyone can help tell me what I might have seen I would be so happy, many thanks,

Hi Dave' I might be wrong it might have been a plane flying over.Jupiter and neptune rise in the SE by around 1.30am. Neptune is just above jupiter.You will see jupiter like a very bright star.Mark
