Astronomy/The Morning Sky

 I live in Southern CA and saw the bright object this morning (11/23) about 5:10 in the SE sky about 45 degrees. I got my scope out and saw what looked to be an eclipse of the object by what appeared to be a planet. I'm confused (this is obviously not my arena).

This does not look like venus!   It is pulsating.  Planets do not flicker.  It has not changed its position in weeks.  I believe you are  either not being truthful or do not know what your are talking about.   WTF?

Just below bright Saturn is Mars.  It has a reddish hue.  Below that is Jupiter which is much brighter.

I have been involved in amateur astronomy for 10 years, and have volunteered at a public observatory for 6. I can answer questions about the night sky, what`s there, where to find it, and also questions about how to use telescopes. I love helping kids and adults learn about amateur astronomy!
