Okay, so I saw an object low in the sky near dusk from my house on Padre Island.

The object was bright in the dusk directly west from Padre Island.

I have no doubt this object was highly visible throughout the whole town.

Now that it has gotten dark, it has moved greatly.
Initially the object was setting to the right from my perspective during dusk while moving down.

It has now been moving left and up.

Now that it is night, the object seems to be flashing Red and Green and possibly blue.

This may be a satellite, or the ISS, I'm not sure. But it was surely lit up by the sun quite a bit near dusk. This object has been visible for the last 4 hours.

I apologize for improper board or such.

What direction is it in?
North, south?

Oops...brain fart

Did it set at about 10 minutes after the hour? If so you have been watching a star. That star is called Arcturus and is one of the prettiest stars in the sky. And yes, stars do change colors. The technical term is scintillation but I like to call it twinkling.

For future reference, satellites and the ISS (which actually is a satellite) move across the stars. They are not visible for more than a few minutes.

Nope, I didn't see it set.

When I was looking to the west, it was moving left across my vision, which was exactly opposite of the movement of the stars, which was to the right.

It was visible to us for at least 3 hours until 9 pm.

I havent been able to check star charts, it just looked extremely odd.
Then it was gone around 10pm, we couldn't see it anymore.

ThreeDeuce, thanks for sharing the story: i think that you are aware of the sighting that took place on march 2008:

Was it a UFO above Corpus Christi Skies? KII TV - by Jeremy Landers - Mar 24, 2008

On Monday night a viewer came by the station with video of a UFO he captured on his cellphone Saturday night. He says it was in the northern part of the sky and stayed there for 10-15 minutes. After hearing that story on our news, other viewers began to email and call us with their sighting claims. One man, Dennis Limon of Aransas Pass told us that he was out in front of his home when he spotted the object. It was large and yellow to orange in color. He claims that it also had a fire or sparks coming from behind the object. Federal officials at N-A-S Corpus Christi say that no one was manning their control tower over the weekend and at the airport nothing unusual was reported. Still, there are a number of eyewitnesses who saw they saw something in the sky. But what it was may remain a mystery.

The video seems to be no longer available on KII TV website, but it can be watched here:

I saw the footage of that "sighting", and I saw the brief coverage of it during UFO Hunters also. Other than that, I have no clue.

There have been some weird stuff down here in the Rio Grande Valley, as well.

Maybe all of it is originating in Kingsville?

I would think that things would be centered on densely populated areas and military bases.
So, Corpus and Kingsville would be on a watch list...... in my theory.

Okay, so.... I guess I might have been imagining things...
Because, there is a star near to the one that I thought was unusual.

So, this thread can be closed.. sorry

Thanks for the update and please don't feel discouraged or foolish. It sounds trite but the night sky is a wonderful thing. The more we learn about it the better.

If I may, I recommend you download this free program. It's really good and fairly easy to use. In fact, it's what I used to help you figure this topic out.
