New skywatcher help
Perhaps you ought to get Stellarium for your smartphone or tablet. When you are familiar with what"s supposed to be in the sky, it's way easier to recognize when there's something unexpected in your field of view, this also tends to eliminate certain misidentification problems involving planets. At one point, I had a friend who became terrified of the planet Venus appearing in the same spot several nights in a row (at least until I disambiguated her). Constellations make pretty good markers for describing the locations of other things "up there" so long as you are aware of the date and the time. Hope this helps!
