Its funny because I was waiting for some one to say this. If that is the case, then how come every other star does not do this huh?
Also, You really need to get your facts straight before posting information that is not correct. The star "Arcturas" Is in the constellation called
"Bootes" which is not even close to NE at the time. As shown with proof in the picture below
As you can see. "Bootes" and "Arcturas" are no where near the "star" I filmed, so please look up your information before you post because I dont
want to babysit and have to prove you wrong.
The star "Arcturas" would actually be slightly near the horizon at the time I filled the star as well. As seen in the picture below.
So once again. Please get your facts straight and don't try to pollute other peoples mind with garbage misinformation.
That being said. Im still not 100% if the star I filmed is actually the group of stars called "Capella" but so far it does seem like it. I will try
to stay up till 3am again because the sky is much clearer today then yesterday. Have a look with my telescope and see if I can get a better image or
