There's a planet visible above Wirral this week

Many people spotted a planet in the sky tonight as it was shining brightly in the sky near the moon.

Clear skies and a close pass to the moon meant that the planet Venus was clearly visible across Merseyside.

The planet will be visible after sunset until around 9:30pm for most nights.

The planet will be at its brightest in April, meaning we can get another good look at the planet.
