I was staring up at the night sky and this thing kept catching my eye. It seems to take the same course every night for the past week.
The object in question is the bright star in the lower right corner. It appears as a bright yellowish star in the South Eastern sky. This photo was taken around 3:50 am in Southern Illinois.
I'm sure it's a trivial everyday thing for most of you, but I'm having a hard time of distinguishing what exactly it is. Being that it's so bright I assume it must have a proper name.
Thanks in advance to whomever can help me.
