I am watching from Missouri, it is no star like I have ever seen before

In Tn as well.... That is a seriously bright star/planet (if that is what it is) up there.

I have been seeing it and watching some of the threads that have popped up now and then over the past 6 months or so.

It may be just me, but the "thing" does seem larger than I can remember.. but that's a funny thing about memory..

I saw this in a california sky a couple of months ago - the red blue and kind of flashing.

Lol @ how clueless people are about what's in our skies. DOWNLOAD STELLARIUM!!! The really bright planet is Venus. The one that seems to be flashing red and blue is Sirius. Seriously people, Stellarium would save you a ton of head scratching.

As we see a stars light when it reaches us, it has passed through the vast void of space, through radiation, through our own atmosphere, it causes it to twinkle, reds, blues, greens, whites..................twinkle twinkle llittle star, remember if it twinkles its a star, if it doesn't its possibly a planet.

I am in Colorado and saw the same thing last night. At first I thought it was an airplane but it was not moving. It just sat there, flashing red and blue lights.
EDIT:
On second though I checked just now and it's still there

That is no planet I have ever seen. So what the hell is it?

Its just these cold wintery nights, everything seems clearer and bigger, thats all, what you are seeing is probably the star sirius, see my last post for my explanation on the red / blue twinkling (flashing)

No I believe Sirius would be in an opposite direction. This is to the north of me but it does not appear to be any star that I have seen before.

Actually I think it's north east, but its kind of hard to tell without a compass.

That's a sad fact but seems to be the truth.

I think he has his directions reversed. What appears in his eyes to the north moving east is southerly (sw) moving west.

It's always a good idea to know the compass directions at your place. The star chart is your friend.

Yesterday when I was looking at it I though it was a satelite, but even they have some movement and can be easily identified. This thing just sits there. Then it came to my attention on ATS that people in other states are seeing it as well. I am off to try to get some pictures. Be back in a bit.

You can check you direction:

If cassiopeia (the W shaped constellation) is to the right of it then it is in the SW.

See, this is why I like ATS, thanks for stellarium! does it do manmade satellites?

Don't see anything from Virgina.

Can you see orion nearby? Follow the line of Orion’s belt to the left to find Sirius. At magnitude -1.5.

It could be you are seeing the North Star, Polaris.

Whatever it is, chances are its star you are seeing given the red blue flashing.

Go here for satellites:
www.heavens-above.com...

Plug in your zip code



Also, in stellarium, did you change directions within the program?

Whatever it was it disappeared off my horizon between 9:20-9:30pm. For the record, I was using a compass and it was in the WNW sky from where I was looking. I never saw any red or blue twinkling. It stayed a very bright white for about 50 minutes, and then took on a yellowish/orange tint as it went lower in the sky.

My view is a bit obstructed. I am in the mountains. Right now I can see what I believe might be Sirius, but I can't see any of the other stars around it. What I saw yesterday was not in that direction, but I must say that what I think is sirius also looks very interesting also.

I don't know about stellarium, but if you want to find out what satellites are viewable in your area, here is the site:

www.spaceweather.com...

Key in your zip code if you live in the US or Canada, and it will give you all of the satellite flyovers for your zip code for the next ten days.
