Venus is very bright tonight.

16:52 GMT, looking south west; unretouched phone photo
Once I had checked it wasn’t an aeroplane, I was sure it was Venus.  But I thought I’d check with Google Sky map; it’s always nice to have an excuse to play with that app.  I fired it up, and pointed my phone at the bright light.

No, I don’t think so.  And not just because I knew I wasn’t looking south…

I waited a few seconds, until the orientation sensor kicked in properly, and the image slewed round to show:

That’s better!
