and this is why astronomy should be taught in all schools in a better manner

most american schools do teach astronomy from 6th grade and upwards, but who listens in american public school?

everyone knows american public schools are about being cool and fitting in with the group "they have social needs you know"

its truely shamful however

here it is 2009, at the dawn of the next age of civilization
and some of my neighbors do not even know the sky outside


i do not blame the people but i blame the government because this was it's greatest failure of all - education

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.

I saw it moving too, saw it turn off lights also.

I don't deny anything about venus, saturn, etc, being very visible right now... but BESIDES them there's something else in our skies and it's really strange!

Ok, are we all talking about the same thing?? because the 'star' that is causing many people to talk here in the uk, is a huge solidified constant bright light, it doesnt flicker, it doesnt change colour and it has gotten brighter over the months.... i have also seen the other planet/star that flickers a green, blue, red colour, this does in no way compare to the other object.

Tonight it was visable from around 9 oclock.

Im all for getting a logical explanation, but all the explanations are different??

Does anyone else get a 'feeling' when looking at it? because me and my partner do... it feels a though its a 'presence'.

OK I've been reading this post all day now and still have yet to see where the "star" is in location to other known stars. That would make it very easy to figure out what it is.

BTW Google Sky its great for locating stars.

Ok do we have a consensus on what this is yet?
Most astronomy forums are saying its Sirius.
Yet Sirius isn't near Betelgeuse.
So what about the strange object near Betelgeuse?

Well, I just went out and its still there. It makes the other stars look like nothing. There seems to be a lot of threads on this topic, so its obviously catching everyones attention.

Yes it is catching an awful lot of attention, especially in the uk.. still with no straight answers... i have been observing the skies for 15 years and not seen an object quite like it.

I'm in NYC and I this thing caught my attention one night a few weeks ago. It's easily viewable in the west southwestern sky. It is BRIGHT and BIG, you can't miss it.

Now Im always looking into the skies and I know Jupiter was visible for awhile. But this light is so bright that it can be seen even through a lite layer of clouds.

Funny thing is when I saw it the other night I took a few pictures of it (with my iphone) with intentions of starting a topic... Im glad to see that it may have been worth starting a thread...

And YES this light can be seen in the pictures taken at night from a distance with a crappy iphone camera-- that's how bright this thing is

So is it Venus?

Actually there's two, the "brighter" one and one smaller (but not so much) that changes color. The one I saw moving, I'm not sure which one is. The other one which I saw turning off lights I think was the brighter one.

It's difficult to draw a conclussion from everyone's experience, just because we're not sure if we have all seen the same. Someone could have seen in fact venus, or saturn, while someone else saw "the poser"

I'm convinced there's something else that is/are not a planet(s) just because of those behaviours I saw on them.

Your are quite right Merkabah, this type of spectacle has not been seen in approx 2000years...


fm ShareIntl
...the like of which has been manifested only once before, at the birth of Jesus.


This is just amazing.... We are all witnessing history unfold before us and nobody wants to accept what it really is...

I wonder if they had this much trouble 2000 years ago when they announced the star then...

Its because all the descriptions are different and also because "experts" stroll in talking about the downfall of the US education system, all the while writing post after post without the use of a single Capital. That'll show em!

Merkabah, I'm not sure what you're seeing, as Venus is too low on the horizon (10 degrees ALT) at 9pm. You mentioned in an earlier post that it was an orangey colour. Saturn is definitely orangey and it starts off low in the horizon but in the East setting in the West.

The poster discussing the Maitraya being led in by the "3 wise man", that's Sirius. Any cultural talk referring to an alignment with 3 wise man refers to Sirius and the Belt of Orion. The "Ori"ginal GPS and our newly defined "Ori"entation with the heavens.

Sorry for the confusion to MuzzleFlash, I'm getting my feet wet in astronomy in order to better understand astrology..I may be new but as a guy that only has to work 15 hrs a week I jump headstrong into my interests, and can name by memory just about every visible star in the vicinity of Orions Belt.

Chadwickus said it best 50 posts ago - "GET STELLARIUM PEOPLE"

Peace

So is it Venus?




On another thread i posted some pics i took with my crappy cellphone camera, take a look:







They're zoomed a little bit, but can you see the brightness?

Ok, how about this.. If you see yourself typing the words "Bright, Big and Southwestern", then before you hit the POST button you can save yourself the time and say "Oh wait, that's VENUS".

Stellarium has proven to be ineffective in this and other discussions on the new visitor. Even those that appear to be avid backyard astronomers who've been watching for years can not verify.

You have it and hopefully a camera. Part of the problem I imagine is that no one really wants to provide their data, lat/long etc, which would be needed to provide authentication of your measurements.

Maybe someone who doesn't care would be willing to provide a great time lapsed photo to show all the stars in the vicinity and then their coordinates. From there someone who is into astronomy could figure this out. If we had two or three pics then this would be even better correlation to say yay or nay to a planet.

Thanks

I'm not sure if this is the thread where someone mentioned that this mystery star is located near Orion, but I just looked again and it is on the other side of the sky from Orion. Sorry if this isn't the thread where someone said that. There are at least 3 threads on this topic now, so its hard to keep up with all the posts

Have you tried to go to Stellarium lately?
The page is so lagged I cant even get it to load.
I think many people must have suddenly gone there due to this star.

I said nothing of any 3 wise men.... that was somebody's fable from 2000yrs ago.

I wish I would have continued in astronomy, I could have figured this out before him...

We've been observing it for about 2.5 months..... it doesnt look like Saturn??

It also doesnt look like Venus, these kind of threads are going on on other sites to, with similar multiple conclusions..

Where are all the experts lol!!

Its not really a fable, its more of a "Cultural Interpretation of an Astrological Event". The exact same applies to the "Cultural Interpretation" of your star in question. According to the link in your signature when they saw the star in Nairobi they knew it was there messiah/Maitraya come to save them.

If that's not a "Cultural Interpretation of an Astrological Event", I don't know what is.

Peace

Nice, here are mine. Taken from central park. You can see "Venus" low in the sky. These were taken at around 8:15 pm a few nights ago. EDIT TO ADD: on a 2 mp mobile camera
