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,
