maybe it was Rigel, Betelguese's twin star. Its blue, and large. Its part of the constellation orion.

Yeah... I've been seeing a bluish star blinking around Orion's belt here in Colorado.

PEACE...

Please correct me if I am wrong, but doesn't the space station track across the sky like satellites (non geosynchronous ones).

oh, yeah, and venus doesn't flicker.


Any light that is close enough to the horizon will scintillate.

fair enough. scintillating, even.
the object i'm talking about, though is not on the horizon.
i looked up and saw the big blue one two nights ago. if that's betelgeuse, it's cool. it's not the object(s) i'm assuming we're refering to, here, though.
i think they are geosychronous communications sattelites. i heard that some sats are the brightest objects in our night sky, now. yes? no?

oops. reread the info. not rigel. wasn't in orion's belt. is there a planet that appears blue? maybe the blue one was venus(although i don't remember venus looking blue. is it?)
and still not the brighter multicoloured twinkling one(s).

Venus has always seemed yellowish to me. It doesn't blink/scintillate much either.

Not sure if this is the forum to post this, but if any of you get a chance tonight, or tomorrow night, look up at the sky for a star that is a little bluer than the other ones out there. I have not been paying too much attention to the new lately, so maybe this is something that I SHOULD know about but don't. Just wanted to see if:

1. Anyone noticed this too?
2. Anyone knows what the heck it is?

It is probably normal, and I am just a little too observant.

-P


Last night I noticed a star that did seem bright and a little bluer than the other stars. I will check it out again tonight.....But where that star was positioned.....was not where Venus should be. i will check it out tonight
