Wow.
Just had to join after reading this ( long time lurker ) as in years of visiting this site, & loving it, but the reason I joined was I saw this exact thing weeks ago only there was around five of them, I woke my other half up to confirm they were there as I was worried I might be having some sort of sleep walking experience, & of course because who would believe such a thing the next day, I tried to video them too but it was so foggy & my phone camera is rubbish, they were almost floating so I thought they could be flares but the colours changing red & green & orangey I hadn't a clue what they were it was really quite frightening, I wish so much I'd of captured them as after watching your video I knew I'd seen the same sort of thing only more.

If it wasn't a planet, why did the observer not see the planet which was there (Venus).

I don't know, why don't I see any stars in the video? Isn't it possible the camera is focused on something much closer than a planet?

Why have people suggested heavy cloud coverage is to blame for the 'dimming,' but yet it is assumed the sky was clear enough to film a planet with a cell phone camera?

Why does 'Venus' drift significantly downward and to the right within the 3 minutes of the video?

I don't think it's settled that it's Venus. Account for the significant difting downward and maybe I'll think it's settled.

As has been said , Venus is super bright of late. So much so, that my little 2 year old says night night Venus out his bedroom window before bed

Because the field of view is too small and Venus is very bright. Go look at Venus. See any stars right next to it?

Who has suggested heavy cloud cover?

Camera moved? Because the Earth rotates? Have you ever used a telescope? Danged planets keep moving!

Just checked the video that I took which is absolutely useless except that I know that I saw something similar 1st December at 3.40am, I did a quick google later that day & I believe something was supposed to be more easily seen in the sky, but i know nothing useful as to what could explain it. maybe the dates could help.

First reply for the cloud coverage being the reason for the dimming -- which I think is plausible.

Also, it seems a significant amount of movement to me in three minutes of filming, but I will defer to you if you say it's reasonable. You would know better than me.

You mean this?

If your sky app is telling you it's Jupiter then it probably is , I'd suggest the dimming is due to cloud.

I don't see anything about heavy cloud coverage.

Did you watch the video? It goes dim for a minute or more. I can only assume the suggestion referred to a fairly heavy cloud coverage.

Why? Was it really windy?
A lonely cloud, gently drifting by couldn't account for it?

Have no idea, but it was completely dim for well over a minute.

That said, you can have it. It was for sure Venus and heavy cloud coverage was definitely not the reason it was completely dim for so long.

Like I said before. I think it was a spaceship. Hovering between Venus and the observer.

Like I said before, I think it could be a skydiver with a flare or some other illuminated object -- like a paper lantern -- drifting downward.

That is not what the observer describes.

And if the observer claimed to have witnessed what they believed to be an ET spacecraft?

If the observer described it the way this one did I would wonder how he came to that conclusion.

Let's look back at the OP:



It's a clear and cold night and as I went outside I noticed a very bright star, much brighter than anything else in the sky... Then it disappeared!

I grabbed my phone and started recording and got this footage..

Now my sky app is telling me that Jupiter, Venuse and Mars are in that area which might explain this but I don't understand the colour change and the disappearing and reappearing.


This is what the observer noticed. I noticed, too, that according to the video captured, it appeared to drift significantly downward and to the right during the three minute video.

The OP's observation and my observation don't exactly fit with the explanation of Venus and a clear night sky.

I will give you Venus, but I think my guesses are as good as yours or anyone's.

That was snark or were you serious?
