Every day when I leave work, I stare at that thing in the sky with disbelief that it could be Venus. I have looked up at the sky my whole life and have never seen a star shine that bright. Much less with the different colors. Just like Sirius; I have never in my life seen that star until here recently. Not saying it didn't exist before, but I have never seen a star pulsate colors like a cop car! I live near a university and have wanted to contact the astronomy department (assuming they have one) and see if they would answer some questions for me. One of my main questions is if Venus is between us and the Sun (Earth is the third planet, Venus is the second), then how is it that I am seeing "Venus" at night with the Sun on the other side of the Earth? Wouldn't that put the Earth between the bright star ("Venus") and the Sun??? How does that work?? I just seems like from Earth the only way we could even see Venus would be in daylight somewhere near the Sun at all times. Does this make sense?? Can anyone explain this to me????

i wudnt bet on it somehow.
more secrecy and cover ups i suspect. astronomers have been very quiet about it.
anyway if the moon is really populated like the moon rising videos suggest and really is in colour when we've been getting the black and white version, then it shows nasa can cover up anything.
also i saw a photo supposedly smuggled out of an antarctica observatory of that thing - dunno where i saw it maybe it was on ats.

You're right, Venus look NOTHING like a star..because it isn't.
Also, I'm not sure if you've noticed but the OP was started in March of this year.
