thanks, not much about it on astronomy sites, I guess the planet cluster in the west is the big news for them.

It looks incredibly large and bright in my dark skies of Northern Arizona right now. I check out the sky at night often, and donīt remember Mars quite that brilliant in the sky. It appears much brighter than anything in the sky right now.

In a way Mars, the planet of death and war and doom, will be clearer in the next couple months than it will be in our entire lifetimes. The close approach in 2003 was much lower on the horizon. This year is nearly as bright and will be passing directly overhead. Only a fraction of the atmospheric interference of 2003. The planet of doom is making a dramatic sight in the night skies about now, but what does it foretell?

Iīve been watching that same star for about 2 years....it didnīt just appear. The fucker is very bright and very red. The wierd thing is it seems to change shape from time to time if you stare at it long enough. Iīm glad someone else sees the damn thing now. I thought I was crazy and noone could tell me what it was.

Where it is depends on your location and it changes by the minute, so Iīm unsure if what he was seeing was Mars.

It has always looked whitish to me, but it might have a red tinge to it, Iīm not sure.

645,
Now you say youīve been watching it for a couple years.

Does it appear to travel through the constellations? Or is it fixed in a constellations and if so which constellation?

Now this star doesnīt have a bluish star maybe an inch away from it does it?
Shoot me. Shoot me now.

Mars isnīt bad. It symbolizes, or corresponds to one of the chakras in the human body.



Martian energy is one of the energies which we have to come to terms with. Solve the riddle within your own self, and all your relationships will come into place, into their proper and loving perspective.

Mars makes a series of close approaches on a 15 year cycle. During these times, Mars becomes brighter than every object in the night sky except the Moon and Venus. That is very bright. Brighter than all stars and all but one planet at its peak. For those not familiar with the planets, go outside the next few months and look up, you canīt miss Mars. It is the red planet, and has a reddish tint when viewed. Also, since Venus is an inner planet, it sets shortly after sunset or sunrise. After about 11 pm during this close approach, Mars is the brightest object in the sky except the Moon. Knowing the mythical history of the planet, it does make me gasp a bit when I see it now. Not just in ancient times has Mars been associated with war and destruction, but in many cultures around the world throughout time. Mars will be rising in the East shortly after sunset towards the end of September. So whatever this foretells, the calamity could happen anytime over the next few months.

Right now, from where we are, Mars rises in the Eastern sky.

It must change though, because of perspective, depending on where we are and where it is, however, but Iīm not 100% certain.

You can tell fairly easy whether or not what youīre looking at is a star or planet.

If the object appears to be twinkling itīs a star, if there is no twinkle, it is a planet. Rule of thumb for those who donīt know, and yes you can see most of the planets with the naked eye.

I donīt know much about constellations but itīs not fixed. When I first saw it it was sort of close to the moon and now it isnīt. And thatīs another thing...I canīt even find the freaking moon anymore....sometimes it there and sometimes it isnīt....wtf is up with that. I donīt claim to be an expert by any means but something is wierd about it.

Hmmmm. Iīm trying to figure out where this object is youīre seeing.

I can not give an exact answer with comparison to where it is with the moon, because the moon is near us.

Keep an eye on it it and the stars around it.

If the stars around it change through time, it is part of the solar system and could be a planet, because it is orbiting (like how the planets travel through the constellations).

If the stars around it stay fixed, it is some kind of star or something outside the solar system.

1) Yes OP, what you saw was(is) Mars.

2) Most people see Mars as being more orange than red.

3) When Mars is near opposition (as it is now) it is brighter than all the othe planets except Venus and brighter than ALL of the stars,At other times (like earlier this year), Jupiter is brighter. When Mars is near cinjunction with the Sun, even Mercury and Saturn can outshine it!

4) No, Mars is not in the western sky. The two planets in the western sky are Venus (really, really bright) and Jupiter (not as bright as Venus, but bright.).
