Question to anyone who knows about stars? i've seen two stars (which i think are stars) which are quiet close together. What are they? you can see them very clearly on a nice night one slightly larger than the other and they seem to of got larger/brighter.I only noticed them about 5-6 months ago.I don't know alot about stars but i'm sure they were not there before, you can see them from the south-west of the plough, you have to be looking directly at the plough or look at the plough count down it's stars from the start of it, look at the 5th star which forms part of the base of the plough, from the 5th star follow it diagonaly to the left and downwards for quiet a distance and you will come across them. can anyone tell me the names of them or what they are?
