Venus & Moon @ the Keswick Mountain Festival

A lovely clear evening yielded views (for some) of Mercury followed by plenty of time to gaze at the spectacle of Venus and the Moon side by side. Later targets were Saturn, M44 and a fire down by the lake shore lit by some naughty campers.

Two pictures are attached showing the Venus/Moon conjunction and I'm looking for help identifying the UFO glowing brightly in the second picture.
