: I live in Mt.Clemens MI. on lake St. Clair. 82 53 w. 42 36 N at about 9.30 pm 10/5/98 : I saw a planet or star at 30/35 degrees south of true east at an elevation of 25/35 degrees above the horizon. Can you identify what it was I saw? My neighbor asked me if I new what it was. I could not answer him so I decided to go to the experts. I hope you can help. Thanks Don Evans

Very likely you saw Jupiter, which was pretty much the brightest thing in the sky that night, other than the moon (which was about 39 degrees north of, and 3-4 degrees below Jupiter then).
