...the planets to the left and right of the beautiful moon this evening?
Am I right in thinking Venus (left) and Jupiter (right)?

Venus should look brighter than Jupiter.
Just looked out, a bit misty.
Venus is below the Moon. Jupiter above the Moon.
If your binocular is working you may see Jupiter's moons near the planet.
