I'm seeing the sky at 23:00 on September 29, 2023, from the east of Algeria's point of view. To the left of the moon, there is something very bright. I need to confirm if it's Jupiter?
(My camera doesn't capture the brightness very well)

Yes, I think it is Jupiter. The night seems cloudy, so we can rule out all the stars. Furthermore the apparent magnitude of that planet seems similar to Jupiter, -2.65. Venus has comparable magnitude, but it already had set at 10:47 pm. Saturn had southern angular seperation to the Moon whereas Jupiter perfectly fits the picture
As Greg Miller suggested, I used a planetarium software, to recreate the night sky from the east of Algeria specifically Ezzaquia, part of eastern Algeria.
Thank you, Hope it helps you!
