I mean come on, this is all being dragged on and on by probably the same person... never actually supplying one bit of real information.

Every post from an anonymous user in this thread has no line breaks, they're all very similar. And here's how most of them start out:

I live in Bowling Green, Kentucky
i live in a village called cadaques on the costa brava in spain
i live in maryland on the eastern shore
I live in the washington dc area.
I live in central florida also & I noticed a bright star like you describe a few minutes ago
I live in Southern California
i live in York, England
I live in Cleveland Ohio
I live in Illinois, America
i live in missouri and have a porch that faces west
We live on Toledo Bend Reservoir
I live in Baton Rouge, LA.
I live in Lafayette, IN
I live in Southern Illinois near St. Louis.
I am from Longview, TX
I live in London
I live in Oregon, USA
I live on the Oregon coast

The star we're talking about isn't a mystery, this thread is!

I was following the "anonymous" trail too - lol.

But I will add that last year I used to watch this
"star" at pretty much the same time every night as
that was when I went out for a break at work.

To me, it appears to be a horizontal shape - not
circular. And yes, it pulsates with different colors.
I had my then co workers look at it and they saw it
but like me, had no idea what it was. I haven't looked
for it this year as I'm not at that job any longer.

Apparantly the two are back in town(earth) and hanging out. Would they eat? do they have to eat? and if they were at a table - they probably wouldn't care who sat where and it would probably be a round table. Anyways they started talking about a star in the sky to watch out for last year. . . and now say its a spaceship. Cool - luckily lifes not the movies or we would all have to listen to our grannies records.

Hey anonymous -

That "Share International" org is of satan,
as well as the "Maitreya" peep.

I wouldn't read it if I were you.

Anyone curious about a star in the sky should download the Stellarium software from

Anyone noticing a particularly bright, flashing star in the West in the Northern Hemisphere is probably seeing Arcturus.

Edit: Bad coding.

Have not read through all the posts by in the UK almost every winter we get reports like this and quite often as a UFO because of the changing colour.
Its always in the southern area of the sky and its always the same star
From this part of the world it's always quite low , clear winter nights and as it's low light from it passes through a thicker layer of atmosphere so it flashes anything from white,red to a blue-green colour.

Did anybody find out what the flashing star in the sky is? I first spotted it last night. It was amazing! Very bright red and blue flashing/pulsing lights coming from this very bright object. Would love to know what it is.

The star tedima reported was indeed Sirius, the brightest star in the sky, as wmd_2008 pointed out. Betelgeuse would be the orange star above it on that date and time.

The stars most often responsible for these reports are Sirius and Arcturus, the second-brightest star visible in the Northern Hemisphere.

Your Sky and Stellarium are two good places to go to identify the stars visible from your location.

I have been watching this star for the past 6 mos, I noticed it when i first moved to langeloth, PA, in Januray 2010. this thing is huge, and blinks, changes colors, and moves. at first it was in the southwest, and now it is in the western sky. it appears high in the sky shortly after sundown, and by 11:30 pm "sets" behind the horizon. even on a cloudy night when there are no other stars visable, this star is there. very strange and bugging me. nobody can really tell me what this is. it also seems to get closer and further away - which could be an atmospheric illusion i guess. has anybody figured this out?

it is simply a star they change blue red white green violet constantly changing ive seen them for years and years and watch several every night on my back deck while i am star gazing tehres nothing supernatural or even uncommon about this they are constantly spinning so fast that when the light reaches earth the light reflects off of ice crystals and other things they are very common and nothing to worry over just a very cool site to see if u have bonocs or telescope its even cooler looking

The star you see is not a star. It is an aircraft of some sort, thats capable of hovering, flying,using light as a camouflage to appear to the human eye, as a star. It is some sort of surveillance on the american people. Ive studied it for seven years with a telescope. It will give off three colors of light, red,white, and blue. It will come out before dusk, and will turn its light on and hover in an area for many hours. By morning, its light will shut off, and the aircraft flies away slow. To most people, they dont beleive its not a star. We have tunnel vision,or we just dont care to see the real world for what it is. There are many people now, that know the aircraft is real. Why the news won't tell us, who knows? What i do know, is the world is controlled by our own government. We are being watched. I have shown hundreds of men, and women, the aircraft. They see its real, and it flies, and its light turns off, and on. Is there any person out there, that can tell us the real truth on what it is? Please give us the answer. What we do know, is that it is military, or government, and they dont want us to know.

That flashing object is definitely not a star.. I just watched it (about 30 minutes ago) move as if it were a plane from behind some trees.. I thought it was a plane moving away from me at first even after seeing this thing many times.. but planes kept coming and going while it just sat there.. It's still there slowly moving upward.. It has changed positions amongst the stars so obviously it isn't that far away.. It went from far south of the big dipper handle to the east of it side by side.. No way that is a star. Also satellites are comparatively tiny compared to this thing and it aggressively flashes red, white, blue, and possibly green but it seems more red/white than anything. Satellites are in view for like 3-4 minutes a day and they are usually impossible to see with the naked eye.

It seems like sometimes when it "stops" in a certain position that it is actually spinning in circles. Someone has to be controlling it for it to move the way it does.

Also.. This isn't really related but 2 nights ago at 1:40 a.m. I saw the brightest light in the sky I have seen in my life..aside from the sun of course. It was to the north of me and lit up the area so much that I thought it was the moon until I glanced up. I tried to take a picture but it was dropping behind trees in the distance. That's actually why I was outside tonight watching the flashing "star". I'm waiting for that bright light. Does anyone have a clue what these things are? I tried to get a radar report of the area but I had no luck.

Also I see planes and helicopters around here (NC) all the time and these lights aren't even close to resembling a plane. Actually the 2nd one I mentioned would seriously dwarf a plane no matter how close it was to you in flight.

I am located in South Broward/Fort Lauderdale, FL. My friend and I have been following this star with charts, photographs and soon video footage. Around 10pm November 2010 this star is located nearly due east and the lowest in the horizon as we have viewed it from the top of a 6 level parking garage for reference to the surrounds. This star blinks red, blue, green and white. We have photographed it and it is different from all other stars (as it appears to be a rainbow, while others are strictly white or red) and the brightest object in the sky except for jupiter and the moon.
The strangest observations to date is that this object has moved over weeks in relation to other stars and has a strange "orbit." When first observed in october 2010 it was located in the SE sky and now due east(nov 2010). We know this because orion's belt has not moved!! Over a 1 hour nightly observation we have seen this object move rapidly south then cut back north but always moving up.
Other strange movements have occured but are not expected to be believed without physical observation.

Observe it as late as possible, it should be higher in the sky and not 'flashing' colors. The changing colors is a result of scintillation and the light passing through 'more' atmosphere to reach your eyes. Sort of the same thing happening to an 'orange' moon as it rises or sets.

Suggested reading:

Considering the time of year I suspect your seeing Sirius, especially if you use Orion as a reference. As I (and others have mentioned) try downloading stellarium, that should tell you what you're seeing.

Are you sure you are observing the object at the same time every night -- taking into account the end of daylight savings time? Obviously, the whole sky would be in a different place at, say for example, midnight on one day as opposed to 2:00 AM on a different day.

For example, a couple weeks ago, I was out 1 5:30 AM and saw Orion in my SSW sky. Last night I was out at 12:00 midnight and saw it in my SE sky. This is completely normal.

We know this because orion's belt has not moved!! Over a 1 hour nightly observation we have seen this object move rapidly south then cut back north but always moving up...

That IS strange. Orion's Belt should have moved quite a bit in 1 hour.

Every night for the past couple of years i have seen what sounds to be the same as you are describing, a very bright "star" which flashes blue,red and white, i used to think it was a UFO but i'm pretty sure its just a star. Its always in a different area of the sky each time i see it though.

The stars move across the whole sky during the night (due to the Earth's rotation "under" the sky). Plus, the locations of the stars in the sky at any given time varies from season to season (i.e., Sirius is visible right now, to me at least) in the SE sky right after midnight -- but in a few months it will be in the SW sky at that same time of the night. This is due to the 23 degree tilt of the Earth.

There are several bright "scintillating" (twinkling) stars in the sky that flash red/blue/orange/white -- Sirius and Arcturus are two of them. The twinkling is caused by viewing the star through the atmosphere, and since Sirius and Arcturus are often low in the sky, you view them through more atmosphere -- therefore more scintillation (twinkling).

I I have noticed these lights also. I noticed the one in the Eastern sky, and the lights are bright and you can clearly see them with your eye, I was sitting in my living room and happened to look out the big window and saw this what looked like a huge star but the lights coming from it was not the norm. My daughter has now noticed four of them in the sky , actully in every direction, N,E. W and S. They seem to move with the rotation of the rest of the stars but they do get dimmer and almost disapear then come back with lots of color. I wish I had a telescope to view them, But lke I said you don't need anything to sse this thing flashing its colors, red, green, blue and yellow/white. It does not look natural at all, .... I was here looking for answers and to see if anyone else was seeing this.I was surprised to find this forum. Does anyone have a telescope to look at it. I would think many people are noticing this. We have also been seeing alot of strange things in the sky and the other week we saw a ship in the sky, it materialized right in front of our eyes. It was there one second then gone and did this numerous times in the same place! We were watching all the chemtrails in the sky that looked like CONTRAILS but there were an extremem amount of them in the sky and all in the same area, then we saw what looked like a rocket heading straight up into space. I don't know what it was really, but it didn't look like any of the other planes up there spraying but it was leaving a trail,I did get that on tape and have yet to have anyone tell me what it could be. but this is when my daugher saw the UFO, she saw it 6 times before I did, I was driving and was out of my view, so when I pulled over I got to see it twice right in the area that this what I am thinking was a rocket was. It showed itself to me two times and disapeared as fast as it appeared and needless to say and to my great disapointment I could not get it on tape. But we know what we saw and I don't need anyone to tell me anything on that one.

I can tell you that when I did notice this "star" Ship, I imediatly thought it was some kind of surveillance, so when you posted what you did, it just made it clear to me this was so. Thanks for your post.
