I thought I made it clear that I regularly keep up with available ISS sightings along with any other astronomical events because I am a amateur astronomer and love astrophotography opportunities. The ISS isn't all that bright really. It basically looks like any other satellite, but brighter. This was a BALL of light, very close, not far. Please, don't insult my intelligence any further.

I avoided commenting on this for days after seeing it but I can no longer. Forgive any mispellings, but I recall seeing a disk barreling over a farm in my early years and my sister will corrobberate seeing it as well. I've also seen many shooting stars but then there are these other things most would call shooting stars but when I see them they are a different color trail and go from one star to another. I've just assumed they were starships traveling at light speed. That's my 2 cents.
Sirius is not the only star which displays scintillation. Perhaps if you provided more information about your general location and the time, azimuth, and elevation of what you are observing it would be more helpful.
I was gonna say something about Sirius but, I see Sirius along with this 'star'
Yes. The video you posted shows the effects of using autofocus and digital zoom. Things to be avoided.
Did you watch the video I posted?
how do you post videos to view on the forum so that you don't have to click a link?
Phage, I don't understand why if it was Venus, it would go from a circle to a sqaure type feature...
It can be north, south, southwest, northwest it all varies it's in different locations every time I see it.
