From the East coast of Australia.For the last few months i have seen a bright star or planet ,it is west and appears in the evening after sundown about 35 degrees.I don't know if this is Venus or not but i have been thinking about it because i don't recall seeing it 'until this year .It just seems unusual to me ,it really stands out in the sky.I'm not really into the planet x scenario but would like to know what it is.

It's Venus. I'ts always Venus. If someone tells you it's not Venus they are a disinfo agent. I repeat, it's always Venus... or maybe it's swamp gas.

Originally posted by Tempest333I have nioticed a bright morning star about 1 to 2 hours above the dawn (E), and a bright duck star 2+ hours above the sunset (W).


The one in the morning is Jupiter, and the one in the evening is Venus. I second the idea of getting Stellarium. It's great software, it's free, and it'll answer just about any question like this.

Some Venus tidbits..

Right now it is the brightest object in the night sky (other than the moon
)and starts low in the western sky (for the US) right after sunset this time of year.





Until late September 2010, Venus will appear as a brilliant yellow star in the evening sky, right after sunset. Located 20° above the western horizon one hour after sundown, it remains on view until after 10 P.M. local daylight time.

At the beginning of May, Venus spans 11" across and shows a gibbous disk 88-percent lit. By late in the month, the disk has grown to 13" and the phase has shrunk to 81-percent illumination. The planet shines at a stunning -4 magnitude, about ten times brighter than the brightest star Sirius, and by far the brightest celestial object after the Sun and Moon.

When you pay attention to the fact it's not Venus. The one I was talking about is Capella. And is much larger and brighter than Venus.

Other than the Sun and Moon, no celestial object is brighter than Venus.

Im live on the east coast of Australia, and have noticed a bright flashing star low in the south, Its at its brightest between 11pm and 1am. I have been doing some digging around as im quiet curious about this star, and its odd that there have been 2 threads about a mystery star recently. Im not sure if it is the same star as northeners are seeing and I dont think it is Nibiru lol but It is brighter and bigger than any other star and flashes blue, red and yellow, I freaked out when I first saw it, grabbed my vid cam because I thought it was a UFO but my excitment quicky went away as I realized it was moving at roughly the same speed as other stars. Still really cool and would be stoked if someone knows what this star is...

I believe it is our military they have two spaceships up there now and they are on a Top-secret mission. In all my 50 years I have never seen anything like this.

I'm sorry but it's Venus. I can see it every night sitting on my couch over English Bay in Vancouver which is to the West. It sets around 10pm.

I ‘m sorry, but planets do not disappear in one hour.

This may be getting boring, but... It's Venus!!

Such threads, so often repeated, show some things...

Non use of the Search Function.

How far humans have come from our native connection to the world and sky around us that most don't know Venus is both evening and morning star as regularly as clockwork.

Is it poor education, or poor focus from society?

I see 2 possibilities there, Achernar (SSE) and Canopus (SSW) with Canopus being the brighter. Being so close to the horizon enhances the 'twinkle' and diffraction colours .

At midnight from Tasmania

Achernar mag 0.45 Alt 12 Az 166 Dist 144 LY

Canopus mag -0.62 Alt 13 Az 207 Dist 313 LY

In all your 50 yrs you probly never looked at the night sky before.
If you had you kinow the brightest thing in the sky at this
time of year is VENUS. The military isn't capable of anything I would call bright.

As plain as my ----- it's Venus.

Sorry, this is your opinion; you have not brought any facts here or any sources or evidences.

Instead of ridiculing, try bringing some proof, besides parroting others who also have not provided any credible evidence.

To believe that, you would have to be ignorant don’t you think?


Everyone is guessing in here and not providing any evidence. You all may THINK it is Venus, but none of you who think your right have provided any credible proof.

I would think you might be happy that ridicule was a last resort.
