This has just sent shivers down my spine.  Yesterday I took my neighbour to work, she is a postwoman so gets their but 6 a.m.  On my way home it had began to get light.  The skies were very blue as there had been a deep frost.  The moon was full and very bright, to the right of the moon was a very bright light.  Like a star but very bright,  It didn't move and just didn't seem right.  

Are stars usually visible in daylight?  Can't imagine what else it could be however I have never seen that before.
It's not a star you saw, it's Jupiter, which is very close to the Moon currently.
Both the planet Jupiter and Venus are often visible even when the sky is becoming bright.
Venus, most noteably, is often visible in full daylight with a clear sky.  When Venus is at it's maximum brightness, it still can appear as a faint daylight object if you know where to look.

At the heart of science is an essential balance between two seemingly contradictory attitudes--an openness to new ideas, no matter how bizarre or counterintuitive they may be, and the most ruthless skeptical scrutiny of all ideas, old and new.

That's why they call Venus the Morning Star and Evening Star.
Though it wasn't in the Northern Hemisphere that particular night.
What should have been a easy identification has turned into an embarrassment.
Sometimes I have too many apps but surely I can't get Mars wrong.

I dabble.  Anything "up there" facinates me.
Here's two websites I visit every morning when I check news and weather.  I haven't had TV for about three years now and find my outlook on life has improved tremendously.

I visit this site for daily news about the Universe.  There's lots of links there to great stuff:
http://spaceweather.com/

I love this one.  Get a daily shot of cool astronomical pics and the description is loaded with links too:

The NASA IPhone App is pretty decent as well. I like it for keeping up to date. Fast and well organised. For the Net, I like Ice In Space as it is a resource local to me.
