Cool thread and defintely puzzling... I was told it was Venus but geez I don't know better but for the record it doesn't sparkle at all or has the effects of a star.

It is defintely the brightest object in the sky possibly brighter than the moon.

I been watching it for a while also... and if U really pay attention. There alot of bright stars out lately alot of them almost position equally N/S/E/W just follow the stars ..

Well what I do like to know and I mean since I was a kid in the 70's I always herd of the North Star, where is the North Sky, I havent seen the North Star for like 5 years now.

I seen the moon looking like that this past Thursday, looks wierd... Maybe we're being swooshed around because we're close (our Galaxy) to the galatic center!!!!

Many of these "stars" which so many of us are questioning nowadays, (that fact that we are questioning them tells me something's up) I believe are Starships. Some are vast motherships far out within our atmosphere.....appearing as "stars" to many of us. We are definitely confused by this, as they tend to shift, move and show different colors, are unusually bright.....Many astronomers are puzzled by them, not just us.

We ask the questions....but exactly how ready are we for the truth? We ask questions but dont' want to listen, be open to other possibilites. Instead we react defensively and get our feathers ruffled.... Well, either you are ready and willing and openminded enough to even begin to accept other possibilites......or, you are not. It's very easy to say they are stars, comets, satellites, planets......because that is what we are familiar with and make most sense to our brains and analytical, logical thinking. So it's safe. We think. At least for the moment in time.

I too have watched these "stars" for a long time. It wasn't until early this year that I discovered that what we believe to be Venus was indeed moving around. Then I began to hear the very same thing among others......One in particular mentioned he had watched this light for 4-5 years, move. Sometimes disappear and reappear. When he'd bring it up, no one wanted to listen, so he left it at that.

I love it when I hear and see others wake up and notice what is going on around us.

Why doesn't the OP just go outside and film it or take some pictures and then post them. Nearly all cameras have a zoom function so you can get close up or just take a landscape shot, or better yet both. Both shots would be handy.
It would certainly be more productive than looking at photo's other people have taken at other times. If you are looking south then nothing is out of place in the night sky and you already have your answer in this thread, but if you refuse to accept it then you need to actively go out and prove that you are seeing something abnormal. Because frankly at this point we have 5 pages of nothing based on the delusions of one person. You need to at least make an effort first.

For what its worth - im in Birmingham - only 100 miles north of you...Jupiter is the brightest thing in the sky at the moment (when the grey blanket dissappears). You get a good view of it as it swings round to the south. Get some binos and see if you can see moons round your bright object. 4 in a row should be about right for Jupiter. 2 bigger ones to the right and 2 small ones to the left.

I had the same question in mind some time ago and after doing some research I am fairly sure this is Jupiter . At the time it is the closest it ever gets to earth and it is very bright and is very close to the moon (at least from my perspective)

Im sorry but OP, your a tool from a shed and not a very sharp one

First off get a pair of Binoculars and look at Jupiter you will see at least 2 or 3 of the big moons in orbit round Jupiter thus making it Jupiter

when it comes to things in the night sky if something Big and bright was to appear in the night sky do you not think it would get noticed by a lot of people? many many astronomers looking up in the sky

on many occasion i have been standing out side late at night and think hmmm thats a strange light whats that ...a quick search in any good Planetarium software gives you the answer straight away! its not hard to do ya self!

The crescent moon when seen at the bottom, as in the picture, has been called the "water moon"...looks kind of like a bowel, doesn't it ? check out the following info:

starchild.gsfc.nasa.gov...

As for the other question of the planet or star you are seeing...is it possible it is in the constellation of Orion?
At this time, from where I sit, the star of Betelgeuse is very bright. You may want to check out info on it as well.

www.constellationsofwords.com...

hope it helped.

I'm on the east coast of the U.S I see this star,if its the same one,around midnight ,as I have alot of trees around my house so this is the time I get a visual.I've been around for lets say a few years and do not recall ever seeing this star before,Its unusual because of its size and brightness.I don't have a camera that will get a clear picture of it and like you,I was hoping someone could tell me what it is..oh its in the western sky at that time.

Well that settles THAT then, right?

I mean Jupiter was photographed NEXT to the moon months ago, so it can't possibly be Jupiter now, right!?

(Clarity for those keeping score at home, Jupiter isn't near the moon at the moment, Regulas is though....)


tut tut ..if jupiter has been seen next to this star..THEN HOW CAN IT BE JUPITER....??

Chad how the feck did you fail to notice that the photo you're referring too, showed Jupiter, The moon and another unidentified star?

when that guy you quoted said "how can it be when jupiter is right next to it" he wasn't referring to the moon as you posted *facepalm x a billion* he was referring to the unidentified star which you failed to acknowledge....

honestly man wtf. People starred you too...I guess none of them looked at the photo either...


at least look at things properly when you're sh*tting all over them.

and you couldn't even do that properly, you're bagging the guy for saying "its not Jupiter", then you're turning around and saying "oh by the way, its not Jupiter"

WTF!!!!!

That pic of Venus, Jupiter & the Moon together would have been taken on December 1st 2008 at around 6PM and the next event similar to that will occur on March 26 2012 when the thin crescent moon will be in between Jupiter & Venus in the western sky after sunset. Jupiter always causes a stir when it gets closest to us (currently

If it's Jupiter, it's currently in the NNE sky from Melbourne, elevation 49 degrees - can't miss it.

Man-Made?

Are you serious?

This thing is huge.... of course its a Planet!

It's very great to view on a clear sky.... very bright... can't be missed.
