If you have ever been sitting in traffic or a long road, in the winter darkness and spied a bright star.  If you ever wondered if it is the member of a winter constellation or a wanderer, a planet.  If you ever see these things and want to know their names then take a note of the time and rough direction if you can.  In years gone by people used to have this wisdom.  But they never had the internet or stellarium.  Download stellarium here.
