I've been noticing the intensity of the formentioned star for months, All I can say is there is no way on earth the astronomy world would have ignored it and there must be an expert here on ATS who can tell us which star is and why it is so unusual lately.

We seem to be wishing for a mystery. It is not possible that it is "new" and hasn't been mentioned by the tousands of astronomers around the world.

o who is the expert on the night sky here on ATS? Help us all rest by explaining.

Looking forward to it.

I'm not an expert but I have been stargazing for years (occasionally). Everytime I go out I'm looking up. It's amazing up there. Anyway, It's definitly not Sirius. I'm 100% on that. Sirius is below left of Orion. It looks like Venus to me. Yes it's bright but there is bound to be an explanation for that.

I think people are seeing it's bright and thinking it's too bright for Venus so it can't be. You have your minds made up. Just take a breath and think about it for a second. It must be Venus, we just don't know why it's so bright.

And for those mentioning the North Star. It's no where near North. Plus the North Star (Polaris) is not very bright nor distinguished from any of the other stars except for the fact it's the North Star.

I have seen it.I cant figure out what it is.
It might be something that already exists, but we are only noticing it now because its gotten brighter.

Well the past 10 posts have been describing Venus. If you see a green/blue/white star in the SouthWest that is brighter than the rest at dusk... ITS VENUS..

If you see a star that is orange coloured going from east to west in a nice round arc... ITS SATURN

If you see a blue-white star that is the brightest in sky (after Venus sets) and it is in line with Orions Belt... ITS SIRIUS

I was under the impression that the star in question was red/blue/white twinkling? Looks like a police car with its sirens on.

So far its clear out right now, So I will have my camera hooked up to my reflector scope tonight, so I can take some pictures of these things.
I have to put my camera directly in my Barlow Lens so I should only get
63X magnification (700mm/22mm x 2) plenty enough to discern the planet like differences with saturn and venus compared to sirius and "mystery" star in question.

Peace

Not to be paranoid but...
Do you think this might have something to do with what we are seeing?

trust me, i saw this thing multiple multiple times and i assure you it was moving in every direction. not very fast mind you, but i saw it go up, down, left, right, it was very very strange.

no way was it a police car either, because this thing was WAY up there.

At the risk of getting flamed, and maybe tarred and feathered., im going to just throw this out there. It is a conspiracy board, you can't blame me. Is this thing Jupiter/Saturn? the whole project lucifer thingamajig? Second Sun all that jazz. Arthur C. Clarke and what have you? Yeah i know, nobody would ever attempt this, why would they, its all bunk.

So whats the big a** thing in the sky?

Funny, I actually kinda thought the same thing, but, I dunno, I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me because the movement was so minute. I still think its venus.

Wow, you guys are quick to post without letting what you read digest itself.

The star looks like a police cruiser with its sirens on . I didn't say it was a police cruiser. I can see how you might have interpreted it that way because you were so excited to type your next post you saw "COP CARS IN SPACE" and went from there.

I think its kind of a funny image. I'm sitting outside with my telescope spinning through my azimuth so fast chasing those damn elusive COP CARS IN SPACE.

Sorry for being a dick.

Peace

i'm not one to yell "UFO!" by any means, but i honestly don't think it was Venus...i could see what looked almost like flames coming off of this sucker, it was strange to the MAX. i've seen Venus quite a few times so I have a hard time thinking that i misinterpreted it. who knows though, nobody is perfect

i asked what the massively bright light was a while ago and the posts i got back were its either saturn or the iss . its 19.50 here in the english channel and the star/object has just passed its zenith. its possible to see it from about 16.30. it is certainly many times brighter than any star out there

You should see Venus through a telescope at this time of year. I described it after my first viewing as almost a green white ball of fire. Its just so bright there is absolutely no detail and it almost looks like its on fire. The phases add to the flaming aspect of it as well, breaking up the circular symmetry.

I can assure you its venus, at 175x magnification it looks like a nice green/white marble in my eyepiece.

Peace

well the OP's object may be Venus, but I don't think that what i've been seeing is at all. It looked way too close, with a silvery metallic center and it wasn't really ball shaped at all....it's just the color that i guess i associated with the OP's object.

Pickles, that is Venus.. Again, the brightest star in the sky at around Dusk (6 - 7:30) will be VENUS. It will stick out like a sore thumb dominating the whole SouthWestern Sky.

If you hit up wikipedia there is a whole host of interesting information regarding Venus. Due to it following the sun around with sunset's and sunrises's it was given the term "Morning Star" and "Evening Star".

It is also often referred to as Lucifer (light bearer) the Fallen Angel, due to the fact that it is forever chained to the sun never able to escape to the heavens with the rest of the stars. Its orbit when viewed from Earth also makes a pentagram.

Some interesting food for thought.

Remember... Brightest star in the sky , easiest to see at Sunset and Sunrise, green-white flaming brightness.... BINGO.. Its Venus.

Peace

New England here!!! We have been in and out of the clouds alot and you can see "Venus" but you can't see the moon thru the clouds.

The Farmers Almanac says that Venus will be it's brightest now and will not be again until 8 or so years.

Must say, that whent I've gone on my night hikes on cloudy nights and look up and don't see a almost full moon but see Venus thru the clouds you do start to wonder a bit.
