R U Sirius?

Old croft house by the water's edge at Manish, Isle of Harris. I'm no astronomy expert so can't say for sure what the super bright star is (assuming it's a star?) but after a few minutes on Google, came to the conclusion it might be Sirius.

UPDATE.... many thanks to maas412 (see comment below)... it's almost certainly Jupiter.

4 minute exposure. Added some natural LED on roof and front wall of the house from camera right. Also lit the weird long tubular gizmo with the yellow end. No coloured lights used on this one - just bare LED and moonlight.
