Anyone see see a strange "star" this morning
Eastern sky 6:45 just before sunrise. Vancouver/portland OREGON area...just curious if anyone else saw it. Largest star like light I have ever seen...Just wondering if it was a planet...stationary for 5 min and as the sun rose it got smaller...so I thought "star" but it seemed damn close. tried to take a pic with my phone 1.5 mega pixels kinda don't cut the mustard for that type of pic...so sky watchers I would love to know what was in alignment for this and if anyone else saw it too.

Re: Anyone see see a strange "star" this morning
Saw the same thing in the eastern sky about 2:30 am here in Florida, bigger and brighter than any other star in the sky and it did look super close. Headed to bed after that...glad to know I'm not the only one who saw it and thought it was strange!

Venus will be a bright 'evening star' again, next summer.

I also saw huge star in the east and it was blinking very fast with different colors. I think this star is comming closer to the Earth as I have been watching it for a long time and it is getting bigger.

Saw the same bright light/ star this morning only it was in the south. Extreme brightness but fluctuated and then disappeared. I observed it for some minutes before it just vanished. Thought I was losing the plot.

Re: Anyone see see a strange "star" this morning
I posted this on a similar thread the other day

I don't get it i believe it's Jupiter but i have been seeing this star now for nearly one and a half years, almost on a nightly basis, i find that very odd because i thought Jupiter could only be seen for about six weeks per year,
just search glp their is usually at least one thread about it every week and going back the last 12 months

Re: Anyone see see a strange "star" this morning
yeah, There is one I see in the evening in the sw, same position every evening, and always appears to have color around it. I saw it last summer too. Its the consistent position that puzzles me. The one I saw this morning was an absolute first. Again, way bigger than the one in the evening. I really should re-learn my astronomy. I was honestly waiting for it to shoot off and zig zag across the sky. (yes the inner child defies my core logic many many times.)

....i find that very odd because i thought Jupiter could only be seen for about six weeks per year....
 Quoting: djdandew1


Nope - Jupiter is usually visible for 9 months or more, at a time.
This apparition began round about early July - rising just before the sky got bright in the morning. An experienced skywatcher, who knows where to look, could probably have spotted it in the pre-sunrise dawn sky, from late June.
It's currently rising about 10pm-ish - and will come to opposition (due South at midnight) in early December.
Then it'll gradually edge it's way west, over the next few months, finally becoming really difficult to pick out from the evening twilight when it gets too close to the Sun, just after sunset in late April.
Early July, through to late April - that's 9 and a half months.
It varies a bit from one year to the next, depending what time of year (brightness and duration of twilight).... the angle the Sun is rising and setting when Jupiter gets near to it... etc...
9 months is a good approximation in any given year.

Jupiter is currently quite high by morning though...

The really bright thing to the East, of a morning, is Venus.

Re: Anyone see see a strange "star" this morning
I witnessed the beautiful alignment last night of Jupiter, Aldebaran, and Alnath around 1 am.

Jupiter was in the middle, throwing off fiery red spikes of light.

It was really beautiful.

I watched it for sometime.




Sirius and Venus rose together in the East around 5am PDT.

When I was a kid, I had 20:08 vision which is far better than 20/20. One time when Venus was really close I could see the crescent. Venus can be amazingly bright.
