What's name of bright star or planet appears in low west sky soon after sunset in New Jersey ?

In New Jersey sunset in the west, as it gets dark there is a bright Star or planet Looks close which is it and what is it called? I began to notice it around July 7 .

Also anyone know online where I can buy for low price color maps showing the Stars and there names listed below i.d. by the # next to star with name below , Also I like to buy for low reasonably price color pictures of example color picture that Hubble took of the most condense picture of stars and Galaxies ever seen. and or color pictures of planets and Galaxy's, Nebulas? I would hope there must be several online Astronomy web sites selling the above for decent prices. If you know of some let me know. thanks

If the body you saw was in the west, it's was probably the planet Saturn.  If it was near the moon, it was probably Jupiter.  If it's directly overhead, it's probably the star Vega.

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

Only if you have been in the deepest valley, can you ever know how magnificent it is to be on the highest mountain.

The three planets you see in the West are Venus, Mars, and Saturn.

It is Planet Venus,

Simple answer and extremely hard to believe unless you are a true believer in God and Jesus Christ. Hebrews 1:6 states the word "firstbegotten". That means there is a secondbegotten. When the bible mentions ONLY begotten it means only for that time. The second begotten is prophecied in the bible along with many unfulfilled prophecies. He is Gods Wrath and he is here to fulfill the remainder of the prophecies. That is his star and it has been there for three years now. He will come out to the world in God's time. Don't believe and you will suffer a horrible eternity. That is the TRUE answer to the question.

If supernovas were random events, you would be right. There would be a small chance (about 1 in a billion) of a supernova in any year. But from what we know about main sequence stars, a star like our sun has a life cycle that is predictable. Our sun won't ever become a supernova. It will become ...
