|Some additional info for my report of May 19, 2015 observation by Ponoka, AB. Canada NOT Venus.
I filed a report yesterday, and I spoke briefly with Peter this afternoon. At his request, I am adding to my 1st report with some additional information. Yesterday during the daytime, I spoke with a person from the Rothney Observatory, located near Calgary, Alberta. She checked her star maps and suggested that what I may have seen was the planet, Venus. However, I stayed up during the same time frame this past night and indeed Venus was visible in the sky BUT it was located quite a bit further South (in the Western sky), from where I saw the object the night before. Both nights, the sky was completely clear, and Venus although showing a yellowish colour, was not near as bright either. And again not in the same part of the sky. I hope that this is of some use to you.
