Directly above the left shoulder of Orion, as I hold my closed fist maybe eight or ten inches in front of my face the distance between them is approximately from my knuckle to my wrist.
A very bright star with an orange or dirty yellow tint.
Observing with naked eye from Essex in the UK.
Time now 11:20pm.
Thursday, 24th of November.
Observation remained unchanged during a ten minute walk back from the shops.
Has a noticeable orange tint to it I've never seen before, the left shoulder of Orion shares a little of this colour that I don't recall noticing in it before either, first thought was my glasses need cleaning 😁 but other stars don't seem to share this coloration and are displaying what appears to be their normal hue, if my memory isn't completely fried 🤗
I know Mars (yes a planet not a star, I know) is supposed to have a red tint to it but I can honestly say I've never observed any noticeable tint to any object in the night sky with a casual glance with my eye before that wasn't a planes hazard lights.
First thought is pollution of some sort tinting it of course, wondering if anyone has a solid answer rather than conjecture though.
