  • $\begingroup$ Almost impossible to tell unless you provide exact time, date and location! It could even be a smudge / mark on the camera sensor! $\endgroup$ – MiguelH Sep 5 '19 at 9:43

Almost certainly Jupiter, if the following are true:

  • The title of the image: Inked20190904_194204.LI.jpg gives the accurate date and time of September 4 2019, 19:42:04.
  • The orientation of the Moon in the image is such that the illuminated portion is on the right side of the image.
  • The circled object is a planet or star, and brighter than any other nearby object to the moon at the stated time, and is roughly 20° away from the Moon.

Stellarium Screenshot from roughly the stated time.

The Moon moves roughly 13° across the sky every 24 hours, so it's pretty close to the same region as the screenshot, assuming the local times are accurate. Jupiter's at apparent magnitude -1.78 in my screenshot, and the next brightest nearby object is to the moon the star Antares, which at magnitude +1.05, is significantly dimmer. Venus is brighter, of course, but at 7:45 PM on the stated date, it's sitting very close to the horizon, if it hasn't already set. Saturn would also be up at the time, but it's about 50° away from the Moon, and dimmer than Jupiter.

    $\begingroup$ Insane detective work, great job. Would've NEVER noticed that timestamp. $\endgroup$ – Magic Octopus Urn Sep 5 '19 at 16:28
