Clouds causeing the star field to speed up and turn to the south? Really? lol. How does a cloud cause the star field to move? I don't want youtube
links, give me an objective source.
As some have said, its a matter of perspective. IF this happened (as there is nothing more then personal experience as proof) it would have to be our
position which would have moved. Becasue last I've known, the cosmos does not move as fast as what is being suggested. Just because the OP can't
provide other witnesses besides family and friends does not mean he didn't witness it. Most people sleep at night and do not look outside. Those
who take smoke breaks may only be outside for 5 min. 10 mins. tops. So, the next argument is "amature skywatchers would have reported it.' Really?
To whom? And IF this is for real, why do we suppose this information would be released? Maybe these skywatchers can log onto ATS and get trolled.
Here is my hypothesis, not fact, not OMGAWD its real, and not a troll comment.
1. (Plausible explaination) Perhapes the Earth is beginning its cycle away from the solstice. It is a small adjustment, or wobble, and maybe some
may be observent enough to notice annomialies such as what the OP described.
2. (Crazy explaination) the daily wobble of the planet has drastically increased causing star fields to move and the moon to be disoriented slightly.
By an unknown reason we don't understand. Assuming it is a wobble, the perspective may not be noticible on some nights and greatly so on others.
For those who say, "We would know if changes were happening. I don't see anything..."
How about an algae bloom in the arctic:
Making their way through meter-thick ice aboard the U.S. Coast Guard's largest icebreaker Healy in July last year, scientists observed surprising
amounts of fluorescing chlorophyll, indicating the presence of photosynthesizing plant life. -CNN
"If someone had asked me before the expedition whether we would see under-ice blooms, I would have told them it was impossible," said ICESCAPE
mission leader Kevin Arrigo of Stanford University, at a press conference announcing the publication of findings in "Science" this month. "This
discovery was a complete surprise." -CNN
A wobble could bring warmer waters via ocean current to the arctic. This could also result in greater amount of daily sunlight in the arctic zone,
thus providing conditions for a "bloom".
I don't know maybe the OP observed a freak annomilily. Maybe there is more to the story; that being said, lets look at this report in a less biased
