I see it too, but it's to the SSE from my vantage point. Almost in line under Orion's belt. It's really flashing a lot of colors, blues, reds, greens, purples. Not sure what it is, but I've never seen any star twinkle like this one is.

Yes thank you. I'm in Bama. I'm used to seeing Venus and Jupiter and I think I remember this star from a few months back before it moved past my frame of view. I walked out front tonight and it looks twice as big and flashing as it was a few months ago.

Anybody think theres anything to the theory that our magnetic shield has weakened therefore these planets and stars are much more luminous?

Re: Whats the Reddish/Orange Blinking Star in the SSW?
So here's the skinny from my vantage point in Austin, TX.

- Cloudy sky so I got on Stellariam
- Nothing of note should be in the SSW sky. However, Jupiter and a bunch of its moons are pretty bright these days. You can see it SSW but look up about 60° azimuth.
- Now if you look SSE, Halcyon and Sirius A (both pretty bright stars) are at about 25-30° up.

That's the best I can tell you right now, broham.

According to my star map it is Sirius, in the Canis Major constellation. It's really lighting up.

Thanks dude. Jupiter is straight above my head. move south and you see the big dipper. Move further south and its pretty high in the sky flashing blue and purple. Sounds like what you are describing as Sirius.

When I was out at 8 it was much lower in the southern sky but flashing bigtime red. So they dont look alike and Im not sure if its the same star. Maybe theyre redder closer to the horizon like the moon does sometimes.

Not Venus. Venus is the huge bastard in the NW sky and long gone a few hours after sunset.

What's really strange is Sirius has gotten a lot brighter and has scintillated more (IMO) than I have ever seen it. And I've been watching the skies since college Physics (Astronomy got me out of colleg Trig).

I do think we're seeing more anomalies with appearances and movement of heavenly bodies in the last 10 or so years. Or else why would we all be noticing this stuff so much?

Download Stellarium if you can. It's free and a really good program. Keep watching the skies bro.

It is understanding that transforms us, not merely the desire for change, and until a man obtains a thorough understanding of the nature of evil and so becomes equipped to respond wisely to its challenges, he will necessarily be detrimentally affected by it.

Re: Whats the Reddish/Orange Blinking Star in the SSW?
I saw this last night from Tokyo. I could see several very distinct light rays coming from it. It also looked like two stars very close together. I honestly thought it was a low flying airplane at first. Very surprising. I think I saw it last year but it wasn't as large and bright as it was last night. Something is strange about this. It was mostly about seven white rays but the center was blue.

Its sirius, and it has done this before, not very often though, or this colorful. Its providing needed frequency for change, not joking

Re: Whats the Reddish/Orange Blinking Star in the SSW?
Almost certainly Sirius from the decription.

Stars twinkle more when they're near the horizon (more atmosphere in the way) and bright stars like Sirius can show lots of colours as well.

And bright planets like Venus and Jupiter will twinle a bit close to the horizon, especially if the atmosphere is turbulent. Not as much as stars, but they will a little...
