From some time now (few weeks as far as I can remember), there is a very bright star in the eastern sky.
I first thought it was Venus, but according to this link, Venus is in the western sky and sets 2 hours after sunset. But this (very) bright star is still up even though it's midnight (6 hours after sunset).
Does anyone know what is this star (or planet) ?
Please excuse my silly question as I know nothing about astronomy.
