Saturday night I was outside at about 8:00 and I looked to the south and I saw a really bright star. I have never noticed this one before and it cought my eye because of how bright it was and only a few stars were out by that time. I checked to make sure it wasnt a plane, but it did not move at all. Now tonight i was looking for it again but it is gone. It is very weird and hard to explain how bright this thing actually was. hmm maybe not brightness but the size. It was south and i live in NY about 45 degrre above horizon
