Strange star that flashes red, green and blue turns out to be something quite different!

I now other people have seen these "stars" that appear to be flashing different colors. I know my husband and I have seen them several times. We decided to take a couple pictures of one tonight and are pretty sure now that we are right as far as these things not actually being stars. Can anyone explain what these are for me?


1st two pictures are the unedited pictures and the 2nd set are the same pictures just zoomed in...

Anyone else believe in "as above , so below"?
Example of a protein going from linear strand to three dimensional folded enzyme.

You really need to use a tripod, and yes I am pretty sure they are stars. But blurry, wobbly photos prove nor disprove anything.

Its called scintillation where the stars light is refracted through the atmosphere and flashes different colours as the star gets higher in then sky the effect stops. en.wikipedia.org...

SIRIUS, its a star, sorry if I misspelled.

It flashes green, blue yellow, red, etc. If I remember right its like twice the size of our sun and almost twice the distance of our sun.

SUN 1,400,000KM distance from earth
SIRIUS 2,500,000KM distance from earth

I always think that its a chopper or something, because the last month or so it looks like it slightly moves, or that I would like to see it move, LOL. It moves with all the other stars, but still believe its the star SIRIUS.

That's my take anyhow.

Its the biggest star I can see with my eyes, the other is the Planet Jupiter. To me the rest are the solid colors, mostly white

Sirius is a binary star 2.6 parsecs (8.6 light years) from the earth, which is a lot farther than 2500000km
try 81,362,880,000,000km.

here is another thread about atmospheric scintillation of Sirius : Scintillation of Sirius

You're moving the camera, and that's what makes the impression of the line. I've done it.,

satellites prolly, they change colors from the sun reflecting on the metal :/

no, ALL stars scintillate. It is the effect from the atmosphere acting on a point-source of light. That is why planets don't scintillate, because they are not point-sources.

ok so how is what i said a No then? seeing how i'm right as well your statement should be , yes and also , and in his case it prolly still is a satellite if he hasn't noticed it before

I think it's either Sirius or Betelgeuse combined with the fact that you are photographing star light. Either way read up on Betelgeuse it's awesome. It could go supernova any day (well that would mean it went hundreds of years ago).

S&f ! WOW! I only thought that it was myself seeing this/these! THE SAME COLORED FLASHING OBJECT IN THE EXACT SAME PLACE IN THE SKY FOR ALMOST 40 YEARS. I CALLED IT "MY OWN PERMANENT UFO"!
Ha, ha, ha! No-one else seemed to have noticed it or even cared - or if they did they didn't say - but to me it was plain as day and it is STILL fascinating to me. I've not heard then nor since of man-made satellites or space station that flash different colors - I'll agree that it may simply be satellites/space station surfaces reflecting off the sun, but again the colors look too deliberate and deeply bright and real!

I don't live there now, but when I visited 2 years ago it was still there. I remember the night that I very first saw it, I even asked others to call out LOUD the different colors as they changed and EVERYONE saw the same thing. It is very low in the dark night sky, but high enough not to be a warning light on a distant mast or tower. Oh, and the old chestnut about it being a REGULAR STAR ONLY SEEMING TO FLASH COLORS DUE TO EARTH ATMOSPHERE is RUBBISH! There are REGULAR stars next to it which are NOTHING like it! It is as if it is a colored LED flashing it is so different!

IMAGINE IF ITS ALIEN - BEEN THERE IN PLAIN SITE FOR THOUSANDS, MILLIONS, BILLIONS, TRILLIONS OF YEARS - AND THE GOVERNMENT DOES NOT TELL US ABOUT IT, OR MAYBE IT IS BLACK-OPS, OR IS COMPLETELY EXPLAINABLE?
