My daughter, age 2, looked up in the Ohio sky (we have very poor star-viewing compared to Arizona) and pointed at a light. She said "what is that". I said "that is a star, honey". She said "can you get it for me, I can't reach".
I have an app named skyview and I took a screenshot, but I lost the name. It was visible from Ohio at 9:27pm on the 5th of September; the image was nearly straight up. what its name was.
Update: I know what Jupiter is, and the skyview app shows it as a Voyager-style picture of the planet. I'm sure the star she wanted was not Jupiter. I do not remember
Can you help me determine which star it is?
I think it is Gliese, but I can't remember and I don't know with any confidence.
Extra credit: How do I give it to her. I'm thinking of getting it painted by an artist. If it has planets or is a multi-star system that would go well in a painting. Understanding some of the stellar dynamics would also be a help in making a reasonable rendering. Also, can you tell me any of the names of the decently capable artists who render quasi-realistic astronomic bodies that I might be able to ask to render this.
