The big bright light in the south-western sky is Venus. Why is everybody noticing it now? Because it’s at it’s brightest. It doesn’t always look like this. Venus has phases like the moon. However, when it is at full, it is further away from earth, so not as bright. Sometimes the orbit places it as the morning star. But about eight months ago, the orbit is now as the evening star position . As it gets closer to earth, it appears brighter. That’s what you are seeing now, at the brightest.
My nephew bought himself a Celestron Skyscout–a nifty toy that uses GPS to tell where you are in relation to the night sky and can identify celestial objects. Over Christmas I pointed it at everything in the night sky. Like Stellarium, it identified the big bright light as Venus.
You can see it about 30 minutes after sunset for about an hour . . .
. . . It has been out for the last month or two at the same spot every night. . . .
. . . This "object" will pulsate for about an hour and then vanish from plain sight. It is reddish orange. . . .
. . . It's the pulsation that is odd-not regular and not moving. . . .
. . . When I searched online-people from the NE, SW and Canada have reported it as well. It pulsates and then dies out and then comes back and then dies out for good. It disappears before total dark. (around 8pm here) . . .
. . . It was brighter than Venus at times. Then it would get as dim as 4 or 5 mag. It would last for about 3 hours and vanish for the night. .

Whatever it is I think that someone will use it to their advantage. Whether they were the cause of it or not, noone knows for sure whether it's a planet or not and the speculation is enough for people to give in and say it was......
No longer will they regard anything as their own, they will have no possession, no gold or silver, no home, no relatives! But they will lead the holy life of chastity under Maitreya's guidance. They will have torn the net of the passions, they will manage to enter into trances, and theirs will be an abundance of joy and happiness

Well...I'm in the U.S. and my house faces due west and right now I can look out of my front door and see a very big - something - that does not twinkle. I mean it's big.
I'm under the impression that Venus is an early evening star, so I don't think that's it.
Does anyone else see what I'm talking about? I never noticed this until about four or five months ago.

Yes, it looks like that one.
