"star" looking object next to the moon

My husband and I were leaving for work and I looked up at the moon and noticed what looked like a star next to the moon. It was very bright with kind of a yellowish color to it. I told my husband to look at it and I ran in the house and got the binoculars. It didn't look any bigger through the binoculars. We both thought it was really strange to see a "star" that close to the moon and in all of our years we have never seen anything like it. Logic tells me it was a planet and if it was I would like to know which one.
