Oh wow look at all the replies! last night(or early Wednesday AM) after i posted my thread I ended up watching Alex Jones youtube thread which i
stumbled upon after trying to lookup some Japan Earthquake videos(nuclear situation, and HAARP for fun) after I waited about 15 mins with no replies.
Looks like i left too soon! Well not really... the board was strangely really dead last night after 1 AM hence why i went a you'tubing.
To answer one question I was looking at the red star/planet with the naked eye, not using a telescope. As i had mentioned it was red in colour, and
seemed to pulse/flicker, and over the course of that first hour i had taken notice to it, it had moved fairly quickly as compared to the other stars
and Moon in the sky. I had an eye on it for about another 30-45 mins after i posted, and then lost track of it when i got to involved in whatever
video(s) i was watching at the time. When i did remember to look out my window and try to located it i had no idea where it ended up. there was a tiny
bit of forecast off in the distance towards the west so it is possible that it was hidden behind it, however what forecast there was, was very
transparent and i could see the other stars threw it, so i don't know...
@chefc14 thnx for the video post. hmmm..it's a but hard to tell with that video because it is so zoomed in on whatever it's watching i can only make
out a blurry red light. however it is possible that it resembles whatever i saw.
@maarts69za nice pic! what is that rolling line going up and down across the sky when u zoom out? did someone say it was camera flare? cool outcome
either way. my sky wasn't that exciting looking! haha. just a nice clear night with all the usual suspects(stars, big dipper, the Moon and it;s ever
changing shadow) with the edition of this new object.
@SixX1874 nice story. i went out onto my balcony at one point to stare at it once i noticed how quickly it seemed to be moving compared to everything
else in the sky. i am sure it a planet/star/dwarf?, some kind of heavenly body anyways, but there were a couple times i thought i actually could see
it slowly creeping across the sky. it was strange.
@EvolEric cool thanks for the info. that might be it!? i have no idea lol. i have never heard of that star before, and actually only know how to spot
the big dipper(little ones tricky) and the North Star. So Arcturus would be visible to me then in the west at my location at 1 AM?
@snowspirit i don't know where Orion's Belt is! lol. however thanks for explaining what that word means finally! Betelguese(and thanks for bringing
it up pazcat). i have seen this word a few times recently here on ATS and had no idea what it meant, and was wondering what it was referring to. i
have no idea why i never actually googled it because it did grab my attention. i thought of Beetlejuice right away of course lol.
@Akragon no it was early Wednesday morning after midnight i first noticed this object, and then i posted this thread around 1:30 AM. i attempted to
get a pic on my cell phone camera, but the Moon's light washed it out in the pictures(i only have a camera in my cell so it's not the best for night
time pictures of the sky though anyways).
and Yay! i just noticed the sky cleared up from the clouds we had all day today(it rained and was +4! spring is here lol). i am going to try and
located the object again tonight which hopefully shouldn't be too hard since it was directly in front of me and under the Moon last night when I saw
it. I will keep you guys posted!!
PS. What would cause a 'heavenly body"(whatever it is) to move across the sky faster then other stars/the Moon? i guess that would mean it is closer
then the objects it appears to be moving faster then??
