1. Moon, Venus, Jupiter, Sirius

I thought Saturn was brighter than Jupiter

Edit : guess not. I swore that was the case but I’m wrong according to Wikipedia

Jupiter is just so much closer, that it offsets the effect of the rings making Saturn slightly larger visually (very difficult to notice without a telescope, and the brightness difference tends to wash that out, even for the few people that have good enough eyesight to see it)
