The last couple of months i have noticed a very bright star/planet/sattelite to the south. At first i thought it was the space station but now im not so sure because i see it every niight. Tonight it is to the south, about a thumbnails distance below the moon. I live on Long Island Ny, does anyone have any idea what it is?

it could be just what you said, A bright star. stars are very numerous and could pop up anywhere.


Btw, i see exactly what your talking about. it looks to be directly under the moon. not flickering or moving. but still doesn't seem to be anything other then a star or quite possibly a planet.

Sorry I have no idea what to say for the next line. besides, a one word answer is all thats required.
OOOH look at this, I still managed to type more than one line, infact it is turning into many lines.

Probably a planet, Venus, Jupiter, or Uranus.

it's probably Jupiter. Should be the brightest thing in the sky besides the moon at night.

Ah yes. I started it seeing as well starting, I think, beginning of Augustevery night (or morning) starting around 5AM. I was a bit intruiged by it too so I snapped some pics and showed to a friend, but later found out it was just Jupiter.

Yes, im looking at it - Jupiter - right now.

If you go to STELLARIUM and download their free program, you can see everything in the skies above you right now, from your location! Have fun with it

That is very cool, I will have to ask my husband if I can download that on my computer.

The odd thing I noted was not Jupiter, but the shape of the moon. Is it just me or does it look more egg shape? I know that it is only a partial moon, but it is like something else is casting a shadow on the other side as well making it more egg shape.

Anyone else notice that?

2 nights ago there were bright red flashes 8-9pm on the eastern side of the moon, no clouds or planes nor helicopters. If it was a "plane", it was stationary, and way above the atmosphere, the flashes were as bright as Jupiter but red.

Anyone else see this??

I was just about to say something about that too! I have noticed that bright light in the sky as well, and I thought it looked out of place. Nibiru?

Hi Leira7,

There is an act on synhronicity right now, the red flashes were between Jupiter and the moon, happenstance it was the dark side of the moon. I know it's not a terestrial "plane" as there were no designated "flashing white or blue lights" as per the standard rules for night time navigation.

No, it is not Nibiru. It is Jupiter.
If everyone would download the software, you would be able to see everything above you


Here is what Im seeing right now, screen shot of Stellarium:

Hey all.
I was leaving work, I'm a photographer, and I thought I would take some photos of the moon and Jupiter.

FYI this is a composite of 2 photos. One to have the moon details, the other for the planet and stars. Can only have one or the other in a photo. i.e. if you expose for the stars, the moon is washed out. If you expose for the moon, stars do not show up. (Thus the reason no stars in the moon landing vids. That is if that was real anyways.
)

So... here ya go!

NIKON D3
400mm lens
ISO 3200 for planet/stars; f/4; 1/30 sec
ISO 800 for moon; f/8; 1/1500 sec



BTW, if you have some binocs, you can see a couple of the moons. My 10x42's work pretty decently.

EDITS: Removed junk text, as I learned to post images correctly. YAY!

Hi Greeneyedleo,

The red flashes were "between" Jupiter and the moon as seen from Sydney monday night.
