Default Re: Yellow object in the night sky? any ideas?

Saw it earlier this evening (too cold to go out to check again). Am in the UK, and it was south (maybe south-south-east maybe), and about 25-30 degrees from ground. Bright yellow. Any astronomers here that could tell me what that might be?

That's Mars. It's unusually close right now. You can't miss it. You can read about it here.

BTW, you can use a sky chart like this one if you ever need help identifying something in the night sky.
