Re: WTF is that "star" that is emitting orange, red, and blue near Orion's belt?
It is Saturn's rings eminating if you are seeing what I have been. It's bright but it is flashing colors. almost like an LED Ambulance off in the distance if you look close.


I think he is referring to something different as I have seen the same thing for about 2 weeks now and it sure as hell ain't Saturn. It stands out instantly as the color is very different from all the other stars in the sky. It seems to be flashing and almost cycling between 3 colours (Red/Blue/White). Looks very artificial.


Yep, this is exactly what I'm talking about.

I would guess it's Betelgeuse. I often skywatch with my telescope and this star is amazing ton look at. It's like an acid trip really.

If I remember right the star is not complete sphere, it kinda has a ig dent it is which causes these colours. That combined with atmospheric interference (particularly on cold nights) causes a strobe effect of red, yellow and blue/green.

Just such for the star on youtube as their are a few videos featuring this star. You will know straight away if it is what your looking at.

As a side note - although the star s part of orion it is at the extreme of the constellation, to a passive observer it could easily seem to be out of that constellation.

Have u also noticed the orion is so low it seems out in your yard almost? The sky completely changed 2 nights ago from my view here in NC. Completely - as in where did that come from? the twinkling star is to the left and the right of dipper - but left star seems to twinkle in various colors. Jupiter is as large as I've ever seen it....

For those living on the East Coast, have you noticed at around 9:15 PM (seen best at this time), there is a strange star which seems too far that emits three different colors? Red, orange, and blue. This star is straight left of Orion's belt. Any idea what it is?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1161954

I have been watching that for over a year. I thought it was some kind of a space security bouy.

I am near the Eastern shore and have recently noticed it. I lokk up at the stars every night and don't recall seeing this until about 2 weeks ago. At first I thought it was a plane or something.... Then I thought UFO... Lol... But it doesn't move and it definitly shows 3 colors blinking ... Red, blue, and white. My husband even made mention of it last night. It isn't like anything I have seen before!

It IS flashing. I've looked at it with binoculars and it is very clearly flashing. None of the other stars ever flash like that. And it has NOTHING to do with their position in the sky as so many shills insist...twinkling does, yes...but this "star" is NOT twinkling.

Re: WTF is that "star" that is emitting orange, red, and blue near Orion's belt?
Was just outside skywatching @ 0330 est in Long Island New York

Myself and another observer witnessed a pulse of white light; stationary, with an interval of 15 seconds roughly 10 degrees left of Orion's belt.

After about 10 mins, the pulse ceased although I don't know how long its been going on. I watched for additional 20 mins without sighting before retiring the session.

I've seen this once a few weeks ago, but never before that; and I've been watching the sky for a good 15 years now.

I wonder if a variable star would ever emit light pulse like that with such a long time between pulses.

"the colors are diffraction from turbulent atmosphere at altitude. When it's down low, its more pronounced since the light has to go through more air than later in the evening when it's higher up."

^^^^THIS!!! it's the colors of the rainbow "emanating" one at a time from a star visually to our eyes looking through the atmosphere towards the horizon.

It's actually two of them showing the red blue and white. One to the left of Orion and one to the right.

They are Betelgeuse and Rigel and also Jupiter is close by but it is not emitting the light pattern.

No need to worry about them but if you're outside right now looking at them it's the one behind you that you need to fear!alien11
