Re: HUGE BRIGHT STAR IN THE EASTERN SKY!
I saw this thing last week a few nights and it was way larger, brighter, and lower than Venus ever was that I can recall.
So I got my friend who has an app on his phone that
will show a sky map where you point it- and there was nothing on the map for this.
sure, it could've been an error somewhere, but I have serious doubts.

Re: HUGE BRIGHT STAR IN THE EASTERN SKY!
This has been discussed in GLP ad nauseum over the last week or so. It's bloody VENUS!

"Venus appears dazzling in September's dawn sky. The planet pokes above the horizon about two hours before the Sun rises, and is conspicuous in the east during twilight. Shining at magnitude -4.6, it is brighter than any other point of light in the sky, and it gets higher above the horizon every day. Through a telescope, Venus' disk appears 40" across and shows a 25-percent- lit phase.

Venus, the second of the inferior planets, is almost the same size as the Earth, and is the nearest body in the sky apart from the Moon. Until recently we knew practically nothing about the surface of Venus, and there were constant references to "the Planet of Mystery". Indeed, until the radar measures of the 1960s even the rate of rotation of the planet was not known.

It was then found that Venus turns on its axis once every 243 Earth-days, making the planet's day longer than its year! Even more surprising is the fact that the rotation is retrograde. In other words, Venus spins in the opposite direction to the majority of the planets in the solar system.

Finding it - one hour before sunrise, looking east.

And it looks huge and twinkles like a star when you first see it because, at a low angle, it's shining through masses of polluted atmosphere. It stops twinkling and gets smaller as it rises higher in the dawn sky.... then you can't see it any more anyway 'cos the sun comes up. QED
 Quoting: Merlin 301957


Did you HAVE to write "ad nauseum"??? Whatever happened to civility and good manners? Not to mention class.

We're not stupid, we're aware of Venus, where it should be seen and what it looks like.

So, as I tell my big dog when she's being a pest, "Go lie down and be quiet".

It's not on Stellarium either. Venus and Mars now below the horizon after 8 p.m., but this object is still there.

Re: HUGE BRIGHT STAR IN THE EASTERN SKY!
I live in Lansing, MI, U.S.A.

I have observed this SAME object for a few weeks now and I can also assure that it is NOT Venus.

NOT VENUS. Period.

I'm 23 years old, and since the Haley in '97 I've been obsessed with the night sky. I stare at it every night. But never in my short time as a being on this planet have I seen something so inexplicable.

If I look to the east I see it about 30 degrees up, and from that point about 15 degrees south. It's been there for about 3 weeks. It's BRIGHT as all get-out, and "twinkles", like a star.

It almost has a blue-ish hue to it, like an artificial light.

I've been trying to look it up for a weeks, and I stumbled on this site. I, by curse of curiosity, just have to give my input.

From what I can tell, It is a non-planetary celestial body, obviously akin to a star. What star, and why it has appeared so suddenly, is my real cause for inquiry into it's origin and lack of explanation.

Please, for the love of my sanity, someone explain this. wtf

You said it is in the East. At what time more or less? It must be Jupiter. Venus is visible in the West just after the sunset this time. If you have binoculars you should be able to see the moons of Jupiter as tiny dots (I can see them with my x5 binos).

WRONG

Maybe Jupiter makes sense. But what I don't get is that the level of light pollution here is insane (for those that don't know, Lansing is the capitol city of Michigan).

Why is it that I'd see a planet, which are normally relatively dim, clearer than any star in the sky? Why does it twinkle? Why is it brighter than any other time I've seen it in 13 years?

You are sane. Many of us here in Ohio have noticed this since June 2009. Can't explain it. It is very low and appears just at sunset as the first light in the sky. It changes colors and twinkles.

Venus and Mars can both be observed in the WESTERN SKY, low on the horizon - not too long after sunset. Venus cannot appear in the Eastern Sky; when it is already appearing in the West!

Re: HUGE BRIGHT STAR IN THE EASTERN SKY!
[youtube]To be clearer about my recent posting: Venus is an "evening star" from late February through October of 2010. This means that it is only visible in the WESTERN sky after sunset. During these months it is not visible at or near dawn!
Venus will become a "morning star" again in November and December of 2010 and will ONLY be visible in the EASTERN sky, shortly before dawn.
The ridiculously bright star in the EASTERN sky cannot be Venus. Venus is only visible (at this time - in the northern hemisphere 9/9/2010)in the WESTERN sky, low on the horizon, shortly after sunset.
It is true that the planet Jupiter is currently visible in the EASTERN sky. However, it is ridiculously absurd to claim that Jupiter would ever appear as huge and bright as this current anomaly is! Don't believe a word of it! This is not a, normally observed, planet or star! Keep your eyes on it and watch and listen for further information. This could get interesting!
