Let me try, you and Astro do not know how to use telescopes and cameras OR you are lying. Which one is it?
 Quoting: 3rdEyeE


Alright, I've had enough of this. I have provided tons and tons of proof that I do know how to operate telescopes and astronomical cameras just fine. Where is there any evidence to the contrary? Making ridiculous claims like "my derpa derpa program shows that Mercury is up but not Venus right now" when Mercury currently sets before Venus shows that people are clearly having problems operating their own astronomy apps. Basic calculations can show you that Mercury sets before Venus after sunset right now. The only sensible conclusion is that certain tards on this thread don't know how to operate their apps properly, let alone know to calibrate their phone's compass before trying to use it to locate a planet they can't find simply by looking at a star chart.

Your 'ipad starwatchers' app sucks then...LOL. What is the name of it? If Mercury were visible so was Venus. Mercury sets before Venus.

Venus is the brightest object in the SW sky at sunset. From my location, Venus rises at 11:01 AM and sets at 9:03 PM, so by the time you see it at sunset it has been 'out' for most of the day. It's so bright that it can even be seen in broad daylight if you know exactly where to look.....I located it last week at 2:30 PM.

I've been following this thread for a while and I was hoping someone would produce good evidence to support these sightings as a real anomaly. That would be fascinating.

Sadly, good evidence is still not forthcoming. I haven't seen anything that cannot be plausibly explained by mundane things like contrails or misidentified known celestial objects.

This was one of the better videos, IMO. The "contrail"-esque object, up close and personal.

Looks a lot like the image at 01:01:26 in this video:

The challenge with viewing this object is that you constantly have to have your eyes and camera equipment ready, and no one seems to be diligent enough to do this on a regular basis!

I'm keeping an open mind about it but, in my opinion, I'm looking at a plane in the first video. To me, the dark circular area between the 'tails' is the fuselage.

The footage is unfortunately far too blurred to say what it is for sure so I sincerely hope someone proves me wrong.

The extreme crescent phase of Venus can be seen without a telescope by those with exceptionally acute eyesight, at the limit of human perception. The angular resolution of the naked eye is about 1 minute of arc. The apparent disk of Venus' extreme crescent measures between 60.2 and 66 seconds of arc,[3] depending on the distance from Earth. Nevertheless it is possible for observers with extremely acute eyesight to see a crescent Venus under ideal atmospheric circumstances.

Is this accurate? If so, what is being reported on this thread seems to challenge this. Please explain to the lay-folks, Astro, Geo, Boxer or my new buddy, Seth.

By the way, beware of Boxer, he posted "side by side" pics from a poster and from stellarium (sp). Except, he got called out for lying/manipulating images and the THREAD ENDED. Look it up.

3) No (while you did answer), your answer doesn't put you in any position to tell others what they are seeing for the 1st time in their lives.

4) No (see #3)
 Quoting: 3rdEyeE

The criteria is an utterly irrelevant red herring. You don't have to have or have operate a long-dead infrared space telescope to know enough about astronomy to provide correct information on what people on this thread are seeing.

It's as silly as me asking you, have you ever owned or operated the Robinson Observatory? No? Then your answer doesn't put you in any position to tell others what they are seeing for the 1st time in their lives. How about IRAS, have you ever operated IRAS? No? Have you actually bothered to look up the research articles detailing what it really was that IRAS discovered? No? Then what makes you think you're in any position to tell people that what they see by naked eye is the same thing IRAS saw in 1983? You don't have to have operated the telescope to look up the research it performed and find out what it really discovered.

So now you're engaging in defamation against Boxer, how nice. Venus is not currently a crescent phase, genius, and is not an arcminute in size. It's current apparent size is less than half that, 22 arcseconds. It takes an extraordinarily sharp eyed observer to resolve the crescent shape of Venus by eye, if it is truly possible at all, it is right at the limit of human vision under the best conditions and we are nowhere near such conditions currently. It is ludicrous and ignorant to suggest that misidentification of Venus is impossible because you can theoretically just barely resolve it by eye under ideal conditions.

I know people who don't even spend this much time "teaching" their own children. Sad, yes, but it's the truth.

Life is too short to spend it arguing with those who appear to be driving you crazy. I mean, really...consider your health.

I called you a LYING kook. Listen up you lying piece of shit, Boxer did not alter the image that was posted at all. All he did was directly compare it to Stellarium with a side by side to show that it was just Venus. "The tree lines don't match" because Stellarium's "tree line" is just a generic horizon image, it's not supposed to match, the important thing is that the stars and planet match the image that was presented. Stellarium generates virtual images of what the sky should look like based on the planets' orbits, it doesn't have magical powers to know what your personal tree and roof lines look like unless you put those pictures into it yourself.

The extreme crescent phase of Venus can be seen without a telescope by those with exceptionally acute eyesight, at the limit of human perception. The angular resolution of the naked eye is about 1 minute of arc. The apparent disk of Venus' extreme crescent measures between 60.2 and 66 seconds of arc,[3] depending on the distance from Earth. Nevertheless it is possible for observers with extremely acute eyesight to see a crescent Venus under ideal atmospheric circumstances.

Is this accurate? If so, what is being reported on this thread seems to challenge this. Please explain to the lay-folks, Astro, Geo, Boxer or my new buddy, Seth.

By the way, beware of Boxer, he posted "side by side" pics from a poster and from stellarium (sp). Except, he got called out for lying/manipulating images and the THREAD ENDED. Look it up.

Re: There REALLY IS something strange in western sky around sunset...!!!
Folks please go look at the thread about this SAME VERY SUBJECT/OBJECT...titled, "Re: Pic of the Bright Sphere that Appears at Sunset"

You will see the thread ENDED on 10/8 when Boxer was photographically proven to be a FRAUD. The thread laid dormant for A WEEK, until today. I replied to the LAST poster and bumped them for exposing BoxerBoy.

Guess what happened, EXACTLY two people responded AFTER my post and Boxer call out...Guees who?

1) Boxer---Called me a tard, but did NOT explain his "side by side" fraudulent pics

2) Astro---Called me a kook

Coincidence, or have the shills been "ASSigned" to me? You all decide???

Re: There REALLY IS something strange in western sky around sunset...!!!
Just opened the pic-sharing account...Let's establish some basic FACTS about using lay equipment to photograph objects in the sky/space.

1) It is possible to sse something with your naked eye, but not be able to pick it up in a photograph

2) It is possible to see something through your camera viewer, but not be able to pick it up in a photograph

3) It is possible for people to see the same photograph, but not see the EXACT same things based on many variables (zoom, resolution, eyesight, etc.)

4) It is possible for something to be in a photograph, but not be seen by the naked eye without magnification (i.e. zoom)

Please feel free to add any FACTS and if you disagree with ANY please put your name out there. We will re-visit, with proof. These are basic facts, but take nothing for granted with the "Proof Party".

Looks a lot like the image at 01:01:26 in this video:

That is Tycho-2 1861-1988-1

Here is an image of it taken by the same telescope, the Oschin Schmidt telescope at Palomar, 40 years apart (1951 and 1991).

It's still in the same spot, it's in the constellation Taurus just north of Orion. Just so you're aware, that means it can't be seen at sunset. I can take an image of it myself if you like, it's just a T Tauri type star.

LOL, sadly that's probably the better way to respond. I think he only understands image macros.
