Climbing the eastern sky these evenings is a bright point outshining any star. It’s the planet Jupiter, right there for you to see. If someone asks what color it is, you cah look at it and say white. Because it is white.
Twinkling to its lower right is a lesser spark, Aldebaran, one of the nearest examples of an orange giant star. It’s called an orange giant because it is orange. You can see so tonight, weather permitting.
