I was just reading the bulletin boards a few minutes ago when I got the urge to step outside and poison my lungs. I happened to look up at the moon and noticed a star underneath and slightly to the right of it and I got curious a little curious.
I'm pretty much a novice in terms of astronomy. So my question is what star is it? I'm not sure if it matters but I'm in MD. I'm guessing it's a planet because I could see it while standing in the brightly lit courtyard of my campus library. Any help would be appreciated.
And while I'm at it, is there a website I go to help me more easily identify stars in the sky?
Love the new board BA.
