Hi There

Im from nearby Bridgwater.

Its gotta be Jupiter... easy to find, instant great views... no contest. Lowish in the South West sky this evening ;-). You cant miss it, its the brightest thing in the night sky tonight, like a light bulb.

The double cluster is a must too. Here's how I find it . It is high up in the sky and you can hardly see it naked eye. However a wonderful view in any sized scope.

If you can wait a little longer the Pleiades (7 sisters) rises in the East a little later in the evening. Again any sized scope will suit.

Happy viewing, gonna be a nice clear night me thinks
