|I noticed Venus in the wrong place and it was moving!
Hi, First, I drive a taxi on nightshift and I get my dates and times confused on a routine basis. It WAS the middle of last week between 4:30 A.M. and 5:15 A.M. I got home from work and parked my car facing east. I climbed out facing north and noticed that somebody had moved Venus (the Morning Star) and I thought, how did they do that?, why did they do that?, who did that? I then looked where Venus was supposed to be, and lo, there it was! So I look back and it starts darting around as if the driver is getting a feel for the controls. It was between the ladle end of the Big Dipper and the horizon when it sped away quickly enough to SEEM to blink out, however, I did note a very faint light trail. My perspective suggested a diection slightly to the right and below the lower right star at that time.
