Hello yall, tiz me first post...
The reason I decided to join this site is simple really.
For over a year in Northern California I saw this star in the western night sky. It never moved and was always relatively low in the night sky, while
heading north bound on I-5 yet it could only been seen North of Weed Ca. Like I said it was there for over a year, like a reliable friend, until June
of this year. It was just gone.
It was the biggest dang star I have ever seen, its illumination was bright enough to peer through thin clouds. I figured it was a planet or some
other such thing, the strange part is, the star never moved. It was always at the same place in the sky regardless of the time. Yet, you could not
see this "star" anywhere else in the night sky. By that I mean, you could not see it in Southern Cali, or in Oregon/Washington. Now that didn't
strike me as weird until it just disappeared. Seriously it was gone. A trucker told me it stopped showing up two weeks before, I was in a different
part of the country during the time it disappeared.
Now comes September of this year. I am driving threw Montana, heading north on I-5 between Dillion Montana and Butte. Now in the Northeastern sky
there it is. I continued to drive jumped on the I-90 expecting to see it again, but I was wrong. I searched all over the sky, even stopped on top of
the mountain pass just East of Butte to try and get a better glimpse… Nothing.
October of this year, I am in the Los Angeles suburbs, near Ontario Ca. There it is again in the Southeastern sky. I said, SOB, there it is again.
I looked at it for a few minutes, yet hunger was calling. So I picked a spot on my truck for reference in the night sky to see how much it would move
while I ate. I came back an hour later and the star hadn't moved at all. This star is really starting to get on my nerves, because it doesn't
behave like any other star I have seen.
Question: Have any of you seen this extremely bright star, that seems to bounce around in the sky? Coming and going as it pleases?
I am in Los Angeles right now, and I can't find it anymore. I've been to Colorado, Montana, Wyoming, and up and down the I-5 and I can't find it.
I look for it every night. I miss my friend, can someone help me find it?
Seriously though, what is it, and why does it behave the way it does?
