Thank you very much for that info, I just thought it was me lol.
Anyways I have also seen some strange things in the night sky which I myself cannot explain. 1 of which brought me to this thread in the first place,
fixed disappearing stars.
I was outside one night smoking and looking at the stars as I often do. I usually scan the visible sky to see if I can spot something out of the
ordinary and I have seen a few different things. I live in Minnesota and my geography is such that I can only see about half of the night sky with a
bluff and trees blocking pretty much the whole western sky.
Anyways, I was just looking at the different stars to see if I could recognize any constellations, looking generally south and almost straight up, I
spotted a small cluster of about 3 stars. After a few seconds, 1 of them just faded away, not in a blink or a drawn out thing but fairly rapidly I'd
My first thought was UFO, but after reading this thread, sandri_90's post...
Also, there is the Demon Star, Algol (in Perseus). It`s called the demon star because it was a myth about it being the eye of the devil as it
disapears every two days. This happens because it`s actually a three-star system and it`s being eclipsed by the dimmer Beta Persei B.
seems like it might be what I saw happen because I haven't seen this "star" since. IDK, what do you guys think?
