I saw 2 bright start today and yesterday in the east lining up around 5am. Which stars were they?

Jupiter and Venus. Jupiter is the higher and less bright one, Venus is lower down and brighter. The bright orange star to the right of Venus this morning is Aldebaran in Taurus.

Do you have some Binocular's?
If you do, have another look at Jupiter, the higher bright object and look for pin-pricks of light all in a straight line through Jupiter. They are Jupiters moons.
I saw them the first time the other day with my bino's, pretty cool!:thumbsup:
