I saw it last night for the first time.01/31/2009 Which prompted me to go looking on the internet for any information about it this morning. I have no clue as what it is, but I was mesmerized and continue to watch it for an hour or so, until I could no longer see it. I don't belive it is a star that just flashes. It must be something else. Could it be a Pulsar. Beats the heck out of me, but I'll darn sure be looking for it tonight!!

2 years ago I belive, @ winter.. I opened my cellar window, for a smoke, I can see only a small patch of sky through here, an I see the big dipper in it..

So I watch it, and continue mi smokin.. I notice a star right next to the right of the "dipper", (to the right of Dubhe) I dont recall having seen this star in the formation before.. so im like WTF? And EXACTLY as I think "Ive never seen that one".. It starts to MOVE in circles around Dubhe (the star)..


I rememebr looking around me, am I still alive, is this for real? A star moving, as I think of it.. Everything around me seems normal, not hallucinating from teh herbs
And I look back at the "star" and it is still spinning, in the same location, in circles around Dubhe.. I dont know for how long I watch it, but after at least 10 spins, it "dives" into Dubhe and dissapears..

Ive made a picture to describe what I saw, anyhow I was ofc amazed at this time... And I look to the skies quite often nowadays


The day after, I look out the window again, and asked silently (thinkin) "Are you there? Was that for real?" And I get an instant response, a GREAT flash in the middle of the dipper... For about 0,3 seconds.. Also shown in the picture.. I bowed and thanked whomever it was

I'm in Seattle and I've been watching an object for about a month (I don't know how long it has been there I was in Las Vegas from the end of Nov. to Jan 2nd

any way it's not Venus and it's not part of a constellation it's always in the same spot ,but it hasn't always been there, whatever it is it's new

it is really bright and it blinks mostly an intermittent flash of red but only from the same location on the (object?)

Also It isn't in outerspace

I call it The Sentinal, no one I know knows what it is

Ive tried to take pics of it but so far it just looks like a star in a photo

starting in January 2009, I began to notice that the stars looked brighter and there was more of them than there usually is. I then started noticing that the brighter stars were moving in a way that I had never seen. It was like they were swimming through the night sky like a jellyfish. Once I saw them moving,I became almost obsessed with watching them. I would lay out and watch them for hours every night. Then I realized that EVERY star is moving! It's just easier to track the brighter ones,but they are all moving the same weird way. I watched continously, trying to find a pattern in the directions they were moving in, but couldn't. I am a big believer in God and try to read some of the bible every day, so when I saw this, it immediately reminded me af Acts 2:19 when God is speaking of the time of judgement and He says"AND I WILL GRANT WONDERS IN THE SKY ABOVE AND SIGNS ON THE EARTH BELOW, BLOOD, AND FIRE, AND VAPOR OF SMOKE"(New American Standard Bible). Also,the book of Enoch (which isn't in the bible,but should be) could explain what's going on as well. Enoch was Noah's great-grandfather. In Genseis 5:21-24 it says this about Enoch:'21Enoch lived sixty-five years, and became the father of Methuselah. 22Then Enoch walked with God three hundred years after he became the father of Methuselah, and he had other sons and daughters. 23So all the days of Enoch were three hundred and sixty-five years. 24Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.' In his book Enoch says that while he walked with God, he was shown and explained by the angels all the secrets of heaven and sheol (the abyss,hell). I can't go into the whole book of Enoch here, but if you are interested in reading it for yourself you can read it free at www.sacred-texts.com/bib/boe. I personally believe that a person needs to read AND UNDERSTAND the book of Enoch before he/she can even begin to grasp how things work and God's plan for us.
We are going to focus on the stars here though. Now according to Enoch, stars come forth to earth through portals in heaven. Each individual star by itself, according to their number and their names, their courses and their positions, and their times and their months. Through each of these small portals pass the stars of heaven and run their course to the west on the path which is shown to them and God has appointed. And he calls on them by their name and they hearken unto Him. Each is weighed in a righteous balance according to their proportions of light. And Enoch asked the angel what this mystery was and the angel told him that the stars are the holy who dwelt upon the earth and believe in the name of the Lord of Spirits for ever and ever. It also says that He appoints a judge for each of them so none will hinder. So, basically they have a little bubble that they have to stay in and follow their appointed paths, but they can move all around in that bubble. Now, knowing that stars are the righteous that have been here on earth and worship the Lord day and night, another verse comes to mind that might make sense of things: Revelation 6:9-11 says: 9 When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the witness they had borne. 10 They cried out with a loud voice, “O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long before you will judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” 11 Then they were each given a white robe and told to rest a little longer, until the number of their fellow bondsmen and their brothers should be complete, who were to be killed as they themselves had been. Could it be that the stars moving in the sky is a sign that the souls have awakened and are asking when it will be time? Just a few thoughts to ponder on. Sorry it was so long, but it's hard to speak of a complex subject as this one in only 4000 words. I hope at least someone gains some knowlege from this. Thank you for your time.

I thought I was seeing things when I noticed this.

It's directly out my bedroom window, flashing white, blue and sometimes red.

Every night I go up to bed it's there and I stare at it for a bit and just wonder.

Figures when I wanted a telescope the old lady couldn't find one.

March 12, 2016, observing the same pulsating star and colors with the naked eye from northern MN. The Big Dipper's handle points nearly straight down and its cup almost straight up, if hands on a clock it would be 11:30. Turn that forward to 5:30, that's where the star is located, which you will recognize once seeing it.

Arcturas is often seen relatively low in the sky, and is a bright star, so the scintillation effect (twinkling due to atmospheric disturbance) might be more noticeable. Stars high in the sky can scintillate/twinkle, but it is more common for stars lower in the sky, because you are observing the star through more (and lower/thicker) atmosphere.

Sirius (found by following Orion's Belt eastward) is a another bight star that is often observed relatively low in the sky during the Northern Hemisphere winter, and it, too tends to scintillate a lot.
