If you get asked at this time in March 2012 which are the two bright stars that you see every night on the west, here's what they are.
During this time, Jupiter and Venus are in conjunction. Jupiter is on the right of Venus, and Venus, from what I've noticed, every evening, had a change of position. From March 4, until March 15, Veus is now above Jupiter, as shown in pictures below . I say Venus, not Jupiter, because Jupiter is much farther from Earth than Venus, and Jupiter is moving slower. Venus moves faster in our sky.
The two planets are at the 'hooves' of constellation Aries.
