I live in Canberra Australia, located far south east of the mainland. Not a city in the traditional sense, but its our nations capital. Its not overly
bright, so you still get a pretty good view, especially from my standpoint. I live in a newer community that is bordered by fields and farms, and most
of Canberra is quite open, it even has massive fields in the middle of a few of the inner suburbs, a beautiful place. But I digress
Last year I managed to obtain a Telescope, a nice German made one.
I have had an interest in the stars for some years, but I am not that knowledgeable, so what I did/do is go to an Aussie site that gives me that
latest star charts for the month. Not hard to decipher, or read, anyone can do it.
Now, one night there, while I was looking at my start chart, I was trying to pin point one particular "star" that I saw that night, but couldn't,
and thought it rather funny, especially after observing for a bit. I posted my obs one night on another forum and I got laughed at and told it was
something else, and that obviously because I am a novice I have no idea. Bless them
So just thought that I had missed something or the Star chart
was missing information, but, it was always there and never in the Star charts, and that got my interest peaked.
But anyways, I couldn't pin point it and I noticed a difference in the way it looked in comparison to other stars, especially when you zoomed in on
Now I never got really clear pictures, plus my telescope is a traditional one, it doesn't have recording capabilities and so on.
But I watched it every night for quite sometime, and noticed that it seemed to be getting closer, not like really fast, but it was moving. I didn't
think it was a meteor or asteroid or the like, as it doesn't seems to behave the way you would assume one would after a bit of research.
I said nothing this time, and spoke really only to the hubby about it, explained how it was unusual it was, he checked it out and agreed.
Then not too long after this I saw more and more threads popping up (mine was not the initial starting thread, there were others, but I didn't
realise until a bit later).
I am unsure as to what it is, but have a small idea as to what it may be. One thing that keeps cropping up in my memory, that was announced by the
Tibetan remote viewers I think!!! Was that when and if the Others come, they will appear in a way that is non threatening to us. To me this a good way
of doing this, get us used to the site of them in the sky, coming closer, but not presenting any real threat......what happens when they hit our
doorstep who knows.
So again my interest is peaked! I will have to start making and writing down my obs, and posting. May be a good idea for us all to keep tabs some way
or another. Maybe another Title thread that is sorted by country so we can compare differences etc!
