I often answer viewer questions regarding what shiny object is in the sky.  To find the answer, I have bookmarked Sky & Telescope magazine. 

This link, called This Week's Sky at a Glance, will give you the answers you are looking for:  www.skyandtelescope.com/letsgo/whatsuptonight/226486651.html

Here is the agenda for the coming nights:

Tuesday, October 8th:  The moon shines above Venus in twilight.  The Moon, Venus and fainter Antares will form a triangle.

Wednesday:  Look for Venus far lower right of the moon during and after twilight. 

Friday:  First quarter Moon, half lit will shine above the pouring Sagittarius Teapot in early evening.

The above link always features a weekly diagram that will help you navigated the twinkling objects that grab your curiosity. 

Enjoy and hope for a clear nights to gaze at the stars,
