WTF, star in the sky red white and blue
I know other people have posted about the big twinkling star in the sky but it really is strange tonight. Flashing red white and blue, and dims in and out, almost like a strobe light. It appears to be in the south east sky from Northeast Massachusetts. Not great with geography but it is kinda under orion's belt.

Jupiter -- seen it happen a number of times when younger and still had eagle-eyes.

It's not a theory, it's the star Sirius that you're seeing.

It flashes red, white, & blue... I called it "The Cop Star" because of that when I was a kid.

I think the flashing effect has something to do with the atmosphere.

I noticed a bright star very low in the horizon tonight - very odd indeed. Watched it for awhile. I'm in NE here - was wondering whether anyone else had noticed this also. Gonna go out in a bit to see if it's still there

I may stand corrected -- as a kid and could see well, I always asked and told Jupiter. Sorry about that. Learned something new today. Never too old to learn!

Nice convenient explanation, but how can anyone be so sure that is what causes it?

Astronomers are the worst kind of scum. Running around convinced they know everything about planetary bodies millions of miles away.

How do they even know how far away they are? Freekin astronomers.

Re: WTF, star in the sky red white and blue
ive noticed this last year too, and not just one star. "twinkle twinkle little star"

some people say its the atmosphere making it look like that, but i wonder what the specific conditions are because the star(s) dont always appear to be sparkling

Re: WTF, star in the sky red white and blue
I've been watching this "star" for quite some time now. I'm convinced that it's not a star at all. It definitely blinks several different colors and puts on quite a show. I saw it last night and thought it looked a bit bigger or closer and it seemed easier to differentiate the colors. Definitely red, white, blue and/or green. It looks different from most other "stars".
