Yellow light close to moon emits beam through trees

Last night at 1am, I was in my Sudbury backyard surveying the bright moonlit sky when the already bright night intensified almost as if someone had turned on a bright light. That's when I noticed a very bright yellowish light shining through the trees; the light it emitted shone on my pool cover. Admittedly, the light was obscured because of the trees so I don't know the true shape. The light was fairly close to the left of the moon, as it faces the earth. I do not know if what I saw was a planet or a star and I'm hoping someone can let me know if that is the case. I was the only person, as far is I know, to see the sky object because most people are in bed that late but I am a night owl.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect the witness was observing a celestial body, perhaps Mars, which is quite prominent in the night sky at present. PD))
