    I do not know which planet it is. You say night but Venus tends to be more obvious in the evening and early morning. So I do not think it is Venus. I suspect it may be Jupiter. Many are saying the Earth but you can see that at any time of the day and even at night you can see the Earth if it is not clear.

      Yes, I agree. The Earth is the easiest planet to see at night. However, I cannot know if he intends to lead us astray by saying 'at night' because, of course, we can see the Earth during the day as well.

    Currently the only planets that you can see at this time of the year is Mars Venus and Jupiter and they're not visible in the early night you have to get up pretty much in the morning like 3 ish or 4 ish in the morning right now the most visible planet is Venus which is 7 or 6 in the morning the second most visible planet right now is Jupiter around 3:45 in the morning and Mars which you would think is more visible but not right now around 4 in the morning you can see Mars hahaha

      Venus is bright. But Earth is even easier to see.

    I always thought it was Venus.  It's sometimes called 'The Evening Star' and sometimes 'The Morning Star' because it's the first star visible at night and the last one in the morning.  (Later those names were taken by newspapers.  8^)  ).

    But I'm guessing you know more about it than I do.  Am I wrong?
