Katie, I think what you see is Venus. It's a lot brighter than the other stars.

You can tell it is Venus if it does not twinkle. Starts twinkle, but planets do not.

I read that Saturn would be another planet you could see near the moon tonight, it might be one of the bright ones near the moon.

Buck says it is probably Saturn. Thanks, Toots, for the comment.

Sorry, darlin'. I hope you can enjoy it through the eyes of those who can see it. This is my first lunar eclipse. I'm in awe of the whole thing.
