After five, the sky is beginning to lighten and the stars have faded out. I can see Venus easily. This week, I have been able to see another light in the sky, some way to the left of Venus and a little higher in the sky. Much fainter but still clearly visible against the lightening sky. It is there each morning at the moment so it is not of terrestrial origin.



Are there any star gazers able to identify it for me? I'd guess perhaps Jupiter or Saturn but I'd like to know.

Disappointed, it could just as easily have been Niburu :)
