    I'm not 100% sure because I didn't see it live but I don't think this is a star. This is planet Venus. It's very bright in may. The sky is a bit different from here (France) so I can't be sure for Philippines. And I'm not an astronomer :p
    With eyes only, you can see Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn. With good eyes, you can see the color of the planet. If you want to see better, binoculars are very fine(use with tripod if possible), cheaper than buying a telescope.
    Tip for making the difference between star and planet: a star is twinkling, a planet is not.
    Ok, now I let you go out and enjoy the sky :D

  5. Yeah, maybe you're right. It wasn't a star after all because it wasn't twinkling. My bad.

    Thank you, Yanyan :)
