I just don't understand why it's soo hard to believe it's Venus. Some see Niburu/10th planet behind everything even when people give them solid evidence to the contrary.

I do believe we have a binary star. It makes sense since binary star systems are the most prevelent in the known Universe.

However, this is not the case. The end of spring beginning of summer has always been the best time to view Venus out here.


I guess you could call it faith since reality is ignored. The reality is that we are so close to 2012 that a large planet coming this way would be easily seen by 10,000s of amateur astronomers. A brown dwarf star actually still gives off light/radiation and is very large still, so it would even be seen further away than a planet. Jupiter has been hidden by the sun the last four months and is now coming into view for us, and those who say the planet is hidden by the sun can only suggest this for a few months at best since we orbit the sun and so it would be out of the sun’s way.

So with these facts a person who still believes as we close in on 2012 they need to rely on faith that it will happen in some magical way, because that is all that is left to explain it.

I hope people keep watching it, so they can see how later in the year Venus will become a morning star, and show itself in the East....then keep watching and observing....it will become a night star again like we see now, and show back in the west. Venus's path is awesome to watch and very easy to observe.



The next thing you know, people will be placing objects where they can see the horizon to mark the planet's passage. After a while, they'll start lording it all over us because they can predict the rising and setting, when the rest of us are just scratching our heads and rushing to a message board to talk about the big bright star. Then there'll be all kinds of special days we have to observe and strange rituals to perform.

No good will come of this.

I have seen this bright star also in the western sky. i live in N.C. Seems I see it between 8:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. If I look again around 12 midnight I no longer see it. Tonight I am going to check it every 15 mins just to see where it does go to. The one I see seems to be blinking from white to red.

Yep it's still there tonight at 10pm. A little higher on the horizon than last week. I wish I had a telescope. Little binoculars don't do Venus justice.

Stellarium it's free everyone and pretty self explanatory. A do believe we are a binary system as I've stated before it's just that lately everything is Niburu.


According to all the research if Niburu is real and it's reported positions are somewhat accurate then we in the Northern Hemisphere won't be able to see it until sometime after the summer. So if you spot a bright star in the sky and you live in the Northern Hemisphere chances are it's a body we already know about.

I'm in California. About an hour ago, (9:30-ish), I called my husband outside to take a look something extremely bright in the sky to the northwest. As someone else commented earlier on this thread, at first I thought it was a commercial airliner, but after a while, it was apparent the thing was stationary in the sky.

This was the brightest thing resembling a planet or star that I've ever seen. I was a little freaked out because of it's size and brightness (many illuminating colors, but not really looking like flashing lights). After watching it for a while. we went inside. A few minutes ago I went outside to see if my camera would capture a decent picture, but it's GONE!

By coincidence, I logged on to ATS and came across this thread.

If this is the same thing you have been discussing on this thread, how can it just disappear if it's dark outside? I hope someone can shed some light on this. Do you think it's the same thing or something else?

Venus is extremely bright right now and as the sun is setting it is seen low in the sky, and a couple of hours later it continues to move down pass the horizon...

Well I plugged Los Angeles into my location in Stellarium and Venus set below the NW horizon aroung 2126(9:26pm) local time so it's possible you caught it just before it set. And Venus is incredibly bright right now especially on the West Coast. In Vancouver we have it higher on the horizon because we're further North so after sunset we can see it for about 1 1/2 hours.

Very cool. Jupiter will start to poke it's head out from behind the sun too so will have to keep an eye out for that next month.

Because as the Earth rotates under the sky, the stars (and planets) in the sky appear to move westward. Therefore, for the same reason the Sun rises and sets, all of the stars rise near the east and set near the west.

Venus is relatively high above the Western horizon at sundown and early evening, then in sets in the west at around 10:00 or 10:30......At least that's the time Venus sets right now. That time will change as the year goes on.

Whats great about Venus guys...if you really want to observe it for its might...you can see her before dark while the sky is still blue!

Hahahaha...it's the International Space Station. It's in orbit over us right now and there's enough metal and glass to reflect a large amount of light. It's not any planets or lizard gods

Well considering this thread started a few months ago....I dont think we can use the satellites positions of 'today' as the reason.

But any who....

So, uh, over a year later... is it still Venus?

I don't know.

In which part of the sky are you seeing an object, at what time of day/night are you seeing it, and what is your general location? Your latitude will do if you don't want to give your location.

In one year's time, planets move quite a bit relative to the backdrop of the stars. It will be in a different place in the sky today, November 2011, than it was in November of 2010 (the date of the post before yours), which would be in a different place compared to May of 2010 (the date of the OP), even if you looked at the same time of the night on each of those dates.
