the best way for any of us to share or determine where, exactly, in the sky we are looking, is with altitude and azimuth.

We use altitude and azimuth to describe the location of an object in the sky as viewed from a particular location at a particular time.

The altitude is the distance an object appears to be above the horizon. The angle is measured up from the closest point on the horizon.

The azimuth of an object is the angular distance along the horizon to the location of the object. By convention, azimuth is measured from north towards the east along the horizon.

this isn't hard at all - here is a page that makes it simple for non-astronomers to accurately measure altitude and azimuth.

in order to investigate with Stellarium, you need to provide an exact time for each observation that you describe as well as your location's lat and long.

i would like to know exactly where you see this so i can go out and see if it is visible from my lat which is 30N.

i am a star-gazer, too, but in the summer, the leafy trees around my neighborhood really prevent good casual observation. i have to go up to the local "inspiration point" to get a good look at all the sky.

thanks for sharing this with us!
i am hoping to see it myself and if i do, i will come back and say so.

Not sure what you are really talking about, but I have seen a star that blinks red,blue, white, and I also have 2 videos of it.

Here is the first one. You cant really tell the difference in colour since I'm not zoomed in, but in the 2nd video you can see it clearly.

2nd Video.

To show what kind of sparkle it gave off, I found a picture that came close.
The object I saw gave off more, and was shining all around.

When it would be flashing, it would get brighter. And it had a very big sparkle to it. But it's body, or mass, was like if nothing was there.

I saw the exact thing in Ontario. Only 3 months or something ago. It was very bright, and it was at sundown when I could see it.

I have never seen it since, nor before. And trust me, I looked up every night all my life. I am only 17, but still, this thing stood out like a machine gun at a peace rally. (Made up comparison on the spot)

I live on the east coast, Baltimore to be exact. I have a similar star in the western sky. It has the same characteristic colors, but a better description for it would be spinning instead of blinking. I use a 114 Meade telescope with an updated autostar hand held controller that is viewable on my pc via an lcd camera. I have yet to figure out what this "star" is, and as another poster already commented their is no definitive answer that I have seen either.

Yeah, me too!! Well, Southern Lancaster County, PA anyway! We have the same star/object here. My back deck faces south/southwest and I have seen it every night thats not overcast (like tonight *sigh*). It is the very brightest object in the sky besides the moon, it "twinkles" various colors and is diamond shaped when looking through our binoculars!

Thanks, I will definitely download this software. It looks great and it will help me identify some of the stars I've forgotten.

Okay so here is some information on what you are seeing.

Remember this man is a New Age teacher who believes that the Anti-Christ he represents is in fact Christ and that this Maitreya's alien friends are in fact Masters of Wisdom. All are in fact Nephilim and rebel angels.

This star is not a star but one of 4 enormous spacecraft orbiting the Earth.

You know brothers and sisters there is one explanation.

A UFO (or 4!) announcing the visit of the Messiah....

I live in Ontario as well, If you look at my video links I posted at the start of this page, those were taken Sat,July,9,2010 at roughly 2:30 am facing NE...I never checked for it again after that, but yesterday I have noticed a similar star like it, facing NNW, and its pretty high up in the sky right from the start of the night.

I also made a nice thread about the videos with good proof of what I think it might be. I really suggest all of you have a look at it if you can and tell me what you think.

If you looked at the thread, youll see I use Starry Night. If you can give me the exact time/location, facing which way, I could check if its the same "object/star" that I have filmed and believed to be a group of stars called "Capella"

I've been researching this movement for two years now and its only proving itself to be a giant United Nations supported New World Order/New World Religion movement that puts this Maitreya who has been said to have given over 18 interviews in the USA now as the leader and Christ. In fact he is the Anti-Christ. No one would worship a three-piece suited man claiming to be god. They would however be fooled if he was in league with rebellious angels and Nephilim with UFO technology and was saying he was a world teacher and savior of all religions. So in other words the Time of Testing is just over the horizon.

Remember all heaven meant in the Bible in almost all instances was sky, space, celestial place above, the heavens themselves. The idea of life after death is in fact unbiblical and the mainstream churches who just want your money use this lie to ensnare you into false doctrine. Read the books not included in the Bible and you will understand. Especially look up the Angel Scroll and books of Adam and Eve telling of angels and mysterious lights. Tis does not mean that angels are in fact aliens as we would popularly know. What I am saying is what we think of as aliens are in fact more akin to these fallen angels and their offspring after all angels are sent from the heaven. Angels inhabit the heavens. They are the children of the heaven. In other words they live up there in the heavens. There are good and there are bad. All of these Cosmonauts seem to be bad though. I have a strong faith in Yah and His Son Yahushua and I must share this information. This is in fact a by product of a Satanic miracle by these "alien space brothers."

The best bet is Jupiter, easily the brightest thing after dark where I am. However it is very bright, and the light is white and steady also where I am, perhaps 45+ degrees from the horizon and in a SSE direction, at the time you mentioned.

Simply because this Maitreya can perform miracles does NOT MAKE HIM A GOD OR THE CHRIST!!!!

In fact his name equals 666 in many languages that use Gematriac calculations. Look up posts by watchtheashes on Atlantis wasn't a legend it was in fact one of their cities on Earth when they co-mingled with men.

Christ said the days during the Tribulation would be just like the days of Noah. In other words these extra-terrestrial beings are to be here yet again in the open and will again be with us in a New World Order ruled by Anti-Christ and them with him.

You know that show Ancient Aliens on the History Channel right?

This idea stems from the true visitations by these heavenly beings in times past.

This star you are seeing is a sign of Maitreya The World Teacher AKA The Man of Sin, Anti-Christ, Son of Perdition, The Beast, etc.

Its really there. Venus is not this thing. Jupiter is not this thing. As a profoundly interested person in astronomy and cosmology I would know. It is what it is.

Well for the past 2 weeks....for about 3 hours a night, a very bright "star" is always in the same spot in the sky.

It's not a plane or craft of any kind that I can think of because it just sits there in the same spot.......but 3 hours or so later it's just gone.......

My dad even noticed it and I kept suggesting things and he kept wanting to believe it was maybe a planet or something.....

IT was like double the size of anything in the sky except the moon.....

I'll check again tonight to see if it's still there....


Your description (and someone from the UK whose post is on the same page as yours) best describe what I've seen. Just like you say, for a couple of weeks, and just like the UK poster, I was driving the first time I saw it, and it REALLY stuck out. It was barely dusk but shone so bright and large I nearly ran off the road staring at it... lol.

So it's in the Western Sky not long after sunset. (Also, just lately, the western sky retains a strange red hue looong after dark --like, it never really gets dark-dark if you know what I mean... just stays sort of "red-dark" lol) But I diverge...

Well, WEST is out my front door... so I go out on my deck (view of Eastern Sky) later on, in the wee hours of the morning (hmmm... 3:00 AM maybe?) and lo and behold, Mr. Ima BrightDaggomStar has made its way to the SouthEast, justa shining like a big "How Ya Doing Tonight Did You Miss Me" Celebration!

Go on now and tell me it was a whole different star/planet/what have you. My husband saw the "sunset appearance" and googled to find what it might be. Seems all the visible planets were to be in that same general vicinity (West) after sunset, so we proclaimed it to be Venus. (But a dang well brighter than I, for one, have EVER seen it.)

Pray tell did that illustrious planet travel all the way around the earth and appear in my Southeastern sky later that same night? (Approx 10pm to 3am-- quick trip!) I think not... but since the infamous husband-google-search placed all visible planets in a nice little Western Sky After Sunset Party at 10-ish, what in the Dickens Christmas Carol was that giant Southeastern wonder shining bright-blue/white 5 hours later?

Looked identical-- same giant size, same color, same brightness, same me-freak-out. Oh, btw, I'm in the EST Time Zone in case you want to share in my freak-out. lol

I have a pair of binoculars, and did look at the object, or jupiter as you suggest. I did not see any of it's moons. I noticed that it's shine and sparkle, looked to give off more light than itself. (I hope that makes sense)

Just as a reminder, I have not stated this is a UFO, or any form of aircraft. I might think it is, but never said it was.

Also, This object, was different to the bright star some have mentioned. I've also viewed that object for quite some time, and also notice it grew in size, or has gotten brighter from the first time I have noticed it. That object intrigued me aswell. It also would dim, and get bright. Really bright.

lol, you are not going to see Jupiters moons with your binoculars.

Hey Ahmose

I didn't think it would of been likely to see them either. But you never know eh.

It's around 8:30pm and im going to be out watching, to see if this star/object will be there.

posted on Aug, 4 2010 @ 10:50 PM
If you are looking to the west-southwest, and just up from the horizon:

And a list of the brighter satellites.

If you look at this one

You'll notice that three planets are very close together to the observer. So close that someone looking with eyes might see them as one.

Just before sunset and sunrise recently, you could have been seeing the ISS which I am given to understand was very bright from Europe.

Interesting, thanks. Never noticed it before the last week or so. Do you know of any reason it may be more obvious in the night sky than usual? Too cloudy for anything tonight!

Ah yes - here we are -

From your description - not great but I'll run with it - you could be looking at Antares, but there are actually two triple stars nearby it. Rho Oph, 22 Scorpii. Perhaps your pulsating effect is your eyes trying to resolve three closely observed stars' lights coming through the atmosphere.
