Again, you didn't read the whole post. Its ball shaped for me because I'm looking at with a telescope at 175X magnification.

I'm not going to say I'm 100% certain you're describing Venus but trust me you definitely wouldn't be the first to mistake Venus for something it wasn't.

Peace

Well I think I've just seen this mysterious star that everybody is talking about. I'm in the US (Ohio) and the star is clearly visible in the western sky.

I've heard a few people say that it is Venus but I'm pretty sure that is not it. I've seen Venus in the sky plenty of times and this star is too big to be Venus. In fact, it is much bigger than any star or planet that I have ever seen.

I have my own theories as to why were are seeing this star but I will keep that to myself for now.


This is why it is so hard to take anything anyone says on ATS seriously.
Even for those of us who do not know the stars, planets and space objects well can't get any real information from ATS'ers..

This person is "pretty sure" it isn't Venus, but he's clearly not a professional, then he goes on to say he thinks he "knows" what it is.. (wink wink). (No offense to you Lightmare I am just frustrated)

ATS sucks now.. too many people too many opinions based in personal knowledge analysis, if a star seems too bright .. it must not be a star..
seems? based on what? personal observations?

If it twinkles, it must be a ufo cause we all know nothing twinkles..
"oh, scintillation you say" we'll OK, this can't be that I'd know.

An object just came into view last night? Must be a UFO,
"oh, cloud obscurity or constellations you say" we'll OK, but this can't be that I'd know.

I've never seen it before so it must be a UFO,
"oh, I wasn't paying attention before" we'll OK, but now it's making noise and moving.

on and on...

I wish there were resident experts (real experts) that could actually shed REAL facts on the discussion could just slap down speculation right off the bat..

this is tedius to read all this only to eventually realize it's a planet or something equally benign.

-------------------------

It must've been tedious for you because numerous people have piped in some pretty reasonable answers based on first hand experience with telescopes as well as some avid Stellarium stargazing.

Too bad the tedium of it all kept you from knowing.

And yes.. It is something benign.

Peace

To be honest I was starting to lose it on page three so I have skipped to here.

My educated guess : Venus.

Just because it's coming through as different colours doesn't mean it isn't Venus. I vaguely remember an explanation for the rainbow shimmer sometimes seen through binoculars of the moon. It was in one of my junior astronomer books.

Stellarium (Mac OSX) says it's Venus.

My eye, and years of looking upwards says it's Venus.

But here's the worry, Windows Vista Stellarium also says it's Venus. All of a sudden I'm not certain anymore.

Then, according to Christian teaching, a star appeared in the heavens and led three wise men from the East to the birthplace of Jesus.
Soon, once again, a star-like luminary of brilliant power will be seen around the world. What does this mean? How is it possible? The answer lies in the fact that this mysterious event is a sign, and heralds the beginning of Maitreya’s open mission. Soon after the sign appears in our skies, Maitreya will give His first media interview on American television.


WoW! It appears that I've scared people.... don't want to talk about what I suggested.

It also appears that we haven't any astronomy pros on the site. Would only take minutes for them to verify that this is or isn't a planet.

If you check what I posted earlier it seems to be the most intelligent reasoning. They have told you since last year that there would be a star that is seen in the sky during the christmas season that will be an indication. This star that everyone is talking about has been seen for a little over a month now. Coincidence? Maybe to you, but if no one can "conclusively" prove what this is then maybe an astronomy buff can log it as his own?

As for someone's comment stating that if it were something that was unusual then a real astronomer would have mentioned it. It has been mentioned in the news, I provided a link to an article, there are several more papers that produced the article. As for professional astronomers telling you what it is really, I think they've been steered away from it like they were when comet Shoemaker-Levy hit jupiter. Do not report for your credentials sake.

And as one astronomer stated in this thread, you can use your software to find out what you see but it isn't going to tell what isn't there. And the average astronomer is experiencing trouble finding this "star" out using software, so the general public using this software will probably be lost.

I guess it's just a star that has shown up out of the blue.

That is a lot easier to accept than what I told you it is, or should I say what the UN has told you what it is. Share Intl was initially sponsored by the UN when it started and has lost the public acceptance. This will allow them to say they are distant from the new messiah and had nothing to do with his coming... and his space brothers...

I've been seeing this star as well. Its caught my attention, in the past few months.... I've lived in the country for a few years now, so every star in the sky is quite visible to me at night. I think it is peculiar starting around December or so I started noticing this very bright star. At first I did write it off as Venus, but others are providing their own testimonies here, and I now feel compelled to do a little research on this my own.

We have a snow storm thats supposed to blow through my area today, but if the night sky is clear I will go out and take a video of what everyone here is talking about.

Well, damn him for expressing his opinions on a subject then. The post your replied to made no correlation between this star or planet in the sky being a UFO, yet you felt the need to try and make that connection.

Also, you yourself brought nothing of substance to this thread at all, yet claim ATS sucks now because of the lack of 'real experts'?

When you have these feelings, just... don't post them. It brings nothing to the table other then a personal attack on a poster sharing his opinions. Last I checked, thats a T & C violation?....

Very interesting, the resounding silence makes me wonder if the experts possesses some damning information and that they are not allowed to sound the alarm due to national security concerns.

Nibiru (I suspect it is a brown dwarf with its own planetary system) should become clearer in the following extended months or in a year before it cannot be avoided by the MSM any longer as it might begin to appear in the daytime.

Perhaps hopefully even some or all of its planetoids will be visible, to put rest to any suggestions it is an comet, known planet, or star.

Could a device that measures gravity detect changes due to a nearing Brown Dwarf or unidentified planetary system?

God might indeed press the reset button every 3600 years

I've been seeing this planet in the night sky too. It is real bright and looks huge. I keep wondering which planet it is? ...Definitely NOT a star.

It's been visible here in the UK for some months now and it has, gradually, increased in its brightness. Also, it's visible during daylight about 16:45 BST and can be seen obscured through light clouds where other stars cannot.

you guys would seriously be surprised how many times Venus has been misidentified as something else

I know which object in the sky you guys are talking about because I have witnessed it as well every time there is a clear sky

The object in question is most likely Venus, the brightest object in our sky after the Sun and Moon, respectively

Jupiter is the next brightest object, but the object in question in this thread is clearly not jupiter because it is too bright and jupiter tends to be much more faint

So im going with Venus here, because that is the most logical and reasonable answer.

Can someone please tell me what the red/blue/white twinkling star is? Someone on here previously told me that it was sirius, but then I read that sirius is a very bright WHITE star?

I live in east TN and I can see this star starting at around 7-ish ( possibly earlier if it is dark and clear )

It is not terribly bright, but it is noticeable. If you find orion's belt and look SW a tiny bit you will see it. I thought it was a tower of some sort at first, and then realized that it was much too high. If anyone could tell me what this star is, I'd appriceate it.

Here's a pic I took (25/01/09). From UK looking SW




Now look at the stars around it and match them on STELLARIUM. (Ignore the blue one above it, as thats just reflection of the star on the lens)

It's VENUS !!

Here's ORION on the same night.

How can this statement be true when pro and amateur astronomers say they are pretty sure its. blah blah... The newspaper and media say it is the coming of the new messiah and no one can properly identify it . Therefore this statement can't be true...
