Are people really noticing changes in the sky or is it just imagination?

Many people have posted on this site and many other sites that they have noticed the sun and or moon are in the wrong place in one way or another. I don't believe that the heavenly bodies have moved nor do I believe that the orientation of the earth has changed. But what I have noticed since February is that the clouds look almost fluorescent and very much so at times. It occurred to me that this could be due to a change in the sun's light. What do you think?

I have noticed the color change of the clouds and I think it is the spry from the jets. I know alot of people will debate this but thats ok.. We all have a right to our opinions. Equally important though is the orientation of the moon. You see the "Boat Moon" meaning a moon with the light like a smiley face ( all at the bottom ) is only supposed to happen within no more than 15 degrees of the equator.. I live at 38 degrees above the equator and it happens somewhat often..

Thanks for the thread

all seems pretty normal here... sky - wide...

and has done since these threads starting popping up...

Im pretty sure this is related to the upcoming change of season,as autumn and winter approach these changes always happen as the earth becomes more distant from the sun,maybe related to the axis movement caused by this years numerous earthquakes..this will be our first winter since the axis movement and i believe the day and night sky will look a bit different than years before,maybe much different,who knows?

I thought that was just me, it seems like from all of these damn earthquakes it knocked us off course one-hundred percent. The sun still looks the same to me, it's where it was two years ago. Either that or i'm the crazy.

We do know the magnetic north moves almost 40 miles a year, Some air ports had to adjust to the shift. Tampa Fl air port had to adjust a few months back.
Can earth magnetics change the way the sky may look, it is possible

For me, i haven't noticed a consistent change.

you may be on to something,maybe increased magnetic activity or charged particles in our atmosphere may distort light to some degree and cuse us to see the cosmos differently.Ive noticed the north star is a few degrees off from my trajectory than in previous years,also the sun is a bit more to the north than previous years according to my trajectory

I would suggest you need to invest in better equipment then. The heavens are always on the move, just in a motion so slow that for a person to observe the difference in a lifetime is almost impossible, let alone a year.

If you honestly believe that the heavens are out of place why not get some instruments and record your observations, rather than merely speculate.

Personally, I can tell you I haven't observed any changes and I am a professional navigator and an amateur astronomer.

A simple test would be to find someone with a GOTO astronomical telescope that hasn't had a firmware update for several years. If you don't know what these are, they are telescopes with computer guided mounts to which you input the date and time, align the mount with the north pole (polaris) and select an astronomical object. The scope will then slew to the calculated position of the object (such as jupiter, andromeda galaxy etc). If there had been changes in the heavens that were not pre-calculated, normal movements, these mounts would not work! They do, which tells you just how insignificant a shift the recent eqarthquakes caused. People blew that way out of proportion. We were talking fractions of a degree.

I have a ten year old meade scope that has never been updated and will quite happily find anything in the sky one aligned.

If you think about an itch you just might feel it.

I think it has to do with people paying more attention to the skies, but not realizing that the view of the sky doesn't stay the same every night..

This is going to come across a bit harsh but here goes...

It has to do with iggnorance (the good kind?)... and the fact that too many people didn't pay attention in science class.

The Earth is ever moving, tilting and shifting according to the seasons and rotations and revolving around the Sun.

This gives the illusion that something is amiss, but it is all part of a repetative cycle.

Especially around the end of one season and the beginning of a new season, the changes seem dramatic and abrupt.

For instance, we are nearing the end of summer...yes, it makes me sad too... and being in the northern hemisphere, the Sun is gradually moving further southward in the sky. The shadows, as Sun sets, are longer and more dramatic. We are now able to readily detect the changes in the placements of constellations and stars.... the rising and setting of the Sun will shift southward along the the appearnace thast the Sun is somehow not in the right place.

This also happens with the moon. The colors seem brighter...more vibrant and crisp...that is because as we near the end of growing season, there is less dust from farmers plowing and tending fields...and more rain fall which clears the air.

Surely, there are slight...and I mean slight ... variations to Earth's tilting and the magnetic poles are always jumping about...literally to a degree...but for the most part, all is well and quite normal.

I suggest a good farmer's almanac for reference.

It is constantly changing, nothing new here. Your eyes are changing too. People tend to see what they want to see. It doesn't make it so. I think people are so fed up with their lives they are looking for any excuse for thing to get better no matter how ridiculous it is. Can't say i blame them.

the color red sure looks a whole lot more red outside than it used to. almost neon now.. anyone else notice this?

I guess I am not alone… however; I still question my perfect vision…

My building is located right on the water, east coast… thanks to open hallways I always watch the sky…. In the last 5 years this became like religion and this is how I took the responsibility of garbage… lol…

Lately the colors of the sky at night… the sunset are very different… On Sunday we had a thunder from the ocean… even my ignorant husband actually he was the one who pointed it out… was so different…. It looked like one huge explosion and you couldn’t even point out from where it was coming that is how huge it was…. It appeared to be everywhere and completely lighting the entire sky and water… it was beautiful…

The moon looks like its closer than it use to be with constant color changing and spectacular glow around it…. Only yesterday around 10 at night I saw how blue the sky was… very different color almost neon… this is on the water side… than if you look on the land side we had the most magnificent sunset… it was in neon red…

There is a possibility that I am losing my mind or my vision went lala on me… but I do see “something” that makes me freeze and watch in confused fascination….

Going off of what I know of basic astronomy there are only a few things just to test that theory of the movement of the sun and position of the earth.

The most basic of this happens to be a stick. You stick the stick in the middle of an empty field and then you would go out at sun rise and sunset, You would have to mark, by putting a peg in the ground at Sunrise and Sunset where the shadows happen to be. That way you can trace where the sun is in the sky.

The other would be a sextant and make careful observations on a day to day basis every day to figure out where the sun should be and how much it has moved. If the earth has changed its tilt the readings should be off.

those are the only 2 ways that I know of how to do such.

I have indeed noticed thwe sun beeing extremly bright. So bright that one was blinded by seeing it in thecorners of the eye. H. This has only occured once this summer and never again.
In the winter, though, i'd consider it normal as the snow reflects the sunrays.

I believe there have been changes. I know everyday the skies change a bit. But when you notice things like the same trees by the same parking places that you try to grab at work during the summer so your car will set in shade during the hottest part of the day no longer has shade something is amiss.

It does seem the sun is coming up later than usual this time of year and setting before it should.

The last few nights I've been seeing the strangest thing going on in the night sky. Clear skies no clouds only the stars. I live in the country so no city lights. The first night I thought I was seeing heat lightening. Anyway thats what I told myself. Last night when I was outside after dark again I saw this flash of light. Not a bright light like heat lightening would produce but a faint suttle change in the sky. I thought okay maybe it's your eyes woman you aren't getting any younger. So I had my son come outside (yes I interupted his xbox gaming) I told him look at the sky and tell me if you see anything. He saw the sky light up faintly also. The strange thing is it seemed to light up with what I would call a pulse beat when between lighting up. About the same amount of time.

I thought okay it can't be some kind of electric light set on a timer to go around because theres only woods for as far as you can see and even farther. My next thought was maybe it's the edge of the aurora borealis but struck that thought down because I don't believe it's ever been seen in Alabama.

Something is up with the sky that much I know. Just what and why good is my question.

i have to agree the skys are truely weird
the sun very hot but patches of cloud
of many colours all in one if you know what i mean
and a very odd smell in the air
not like the smell befor rain but different
and i have an idea what maybe the reason for
this and it is the W.M.D we all call HAARP.

And befor any one says how can it affect all over
the world well there must be more than one
plus i have heard that it reflects of the ionosphere
to bounce back up off the sea or bedrock or
artificial ionospheric mirror composed of a plasma layer
which can be tilted.
and maybe this is why we have so many earthquakes
all over the place .
weather wars are here and its killing the planet
and i think its only a matter of time befor she that mother earth
gets rid of whats killing her
yes that is US mankind

mankind that word makes me lol it should be( man not so kind)

I have noticed change in the night sky for about a week now. I can't say the same for day time, but i've made the follow observations.

The night sky is not as dark as it use to be. Where i live there have been almost no clouds for a few days now, so i should be able to see, essentially, infinitely into space. Rather then being basically black, it's more, very dark blue, and the further from the horizon i look, the darker it gets. The stars are a lot more defined, as is the moon, which also appeared very bright and defined. The other thing it appears i noticed was that i could see the curvature of the sky with the earth, almost as if it were bending, like the very fabric of space. It doesn't look as endless as it use to.

A couple of friends have said similar things. However it was when my grandmother said something very similar. She said the other day in the night sky she saw what looked be 'fake' cloud formations, appearing to be clouds but structured into a solid shape. She said she had never seen anything like it before.

Though all that being said, i'm probably just being paranoid - but damn, it's convincing to say the least.
