I took these pics at approx. 3/17/09 1am CST Houston TX. Nikon Coolpix 880. Camera is due west. The trees are about 80 -90. ft tall. The small red and blue spots are bad pixels on my camera, Arghh. The "star" clearly morphs red, blue, white. I tried to get pics showing all colors. I got two, one white, one kind of red. I took one that is smeared due to long shutter speed. This was not in the sky last night. I have not seen it for months. The pictures do no justice. Sorry my camera is not very good quality.

What direction were you facing?
When you look at it in Houston?

So how was this "object' moving?

Was is quick or slow....and was it silent?

Plus, thanks for posting images before in your Op, which is more than what others have been doing lately

just another great case from a good person.

Lights, microbes, whatever the cluck I read about on here, day in and day out...
the proof is out there, but what does it mean?

I hope that a greater Space enetity does exist and will assist us in the next trying times.

We will share our love, No and we dont want weapons anymore.

Once we enter the next renesance, the NWO is defeated, watch out for Humanity because our love will propell us to the stars, and someday we will b e the little shiny dot's, or someone else's microbes!

To the West you have Procyon, to the right of it, NW you have Capella.
Above Procyon to the South West you have Saturn.
Have you got Stellarium?
If not you should get it and look to see if any regular objects are around there.

It the right time, place and description to be Sirius.

It took 10 - 15 minutes for it to fall below the tree line from where it was in the pics. If it is the ISS it is HUGE. The lights flashed white, blue, red almost like police lights. I first posted a thread about this in Sept. 08. I saw it through Dec. and now it was back tonight.

Yes Phage is right.
If you lost it meaning it went under the horizon, then it was Sirius.

WHERE WERE THESE STARS LAST NIGHT? Not here. This is no star or planet. Some people have been saying that for months. But I have never seen it before last Sept 08'. I respect your astronomy, but you will not convince me. Were thes stars in the same place in September of last year? It was in the same trajectory as the thread I posted then. I said SW then but it is in the same place, just a few degrees SW more west.

In September of '08 Venus was low in the western sky but setting earlier than Sirius is.

I know what Venus looks like. One Color white. Sirius is part of the Orion constellation right? It is way out there. Betelgeuse is red. Do you see the size of this thing? And how does a star flash red, blue, white as brilliantly as a police car? I know Sirius is the dog star but this is too luminous. I wish my camera would show better quality.

I have seen the exact same thing south of memphis tennessee.
looks like a star till you look real close and it changes colors.
No star changes colors.

If it is orboting earth it has to be huge.
but if its at 40,000 feet it might be 100 foot wide and hovering.

Indeed?


Source (emphasis added)

This time of year usually stirs up a phone call or email or two involving "first time" sightings of the bright star Sirius, whose brilliant, multi-colored twinkling catches some people's attention at least once in their lives, causing them to gawk and either wonder why they'd never noticed it before, or assume it's a new thing in the sky, some rare and unusual occurrence.

No, Sirius is not part of Orion.
Stars can appear to change color especially when they are low in the sky.

Sirius catches the eye not only because it's the brightest star in the night sky, but also because of its wild and colorful twinkling.
www.signonsandiego.com...

According to Burnham's Celestial Handbook other names for Sirius include "The Sparkling One" or "The Scorching One." The star normally appears a brilliant white with a tinge of blue, but when the air is unsteady, or when it is low to the horizon it seems to flicker and splinter with all the colors of the rainbow.

OK guys. I loaded Stellarium and these were the coordinates from Houston. I only will list one line. I rolled the time back to 1am Looking due west.

RA/DE (j2000) 7h22m2.1s /-8' 58'45.6"

There is nothing there. Sirius and Betelgeuse were way too low. I set the settings to put the trees in view. They were not visible. So?????????

If I rollback to sept 08' when I first posted this it was approx. in the same coordinates. No Sirius

all pinpoint sources of light can change color.
As long as there is a decent amount of atmosphere between you and the source. It's called scintillation, and it's annoying to astronomers.
You just can't ignore this fact when observing.

In your photo, there is another object slightly higher, and to the left.
It matches the movement of your brighter object (it's setting at the same rate). EDIT..I looked again, and I am incorrect about the other "star".
I agree that it's a pixel issue

When you observe tomorrow..take another photo. See if there is a variation in the relative positions of these objects. If it's Venus, there will be a difference.
If it's another star, there will NOT be a difference in the relative positions.

If it's something else, it probably won't be there.

If others in various parts of the world can also see it, you'll know it's not close by.

Will you try and get another shot tomorrow?

The other small blue and red dots in the pic were bad pixels on my camera they show in all my pics. I will try for another one tomorrow. See coordinates above from Stellarium. I cannot stress how much this morphs colors. Not your average twinkle like every other star I saw tonight. I always look for this thing since Dec. and it just showed up tonight.

Yes, I looked again. And I agree..I changed my post to reflect what you told us.
My apologies!

OK last one tonight. I will say the above Youtube video is very impressive. But the Stellarium coordinates were still off for Sirius. As I stated the trees were approx. 80-90 ft. tall and about 150-200 ft away from where I took the pics. Thanks for all you responses. I will try again tomorrow.
