Red and bright about 355 degrees N about the same as Venus above the horizon. Anybody notice this Gem?

right lets KISS......

has ANYONE got a video or picture showing this object WITH Venus at the same time? Is it possible to pan around slightly to then show Venus.

surely this (keep it simple stupid) approach would sort out these sightings?

Last night it looked like it was coming in for a landing.
People.were walking around pointing at the SW sky.

Looked like an intergalactic cop. Flashing red and blue.

Re: There REALLY IS something strange in western sky around sunset...!!!
but here is is again... on the front page PINNED ... so how do you account for that .... ? it is almost am month old but people keep responding and reporting what they have seen...

I had to take a break from it ... I still look and see the object ... like Obama's birth certificate issue - it ain't going away anytime soon
 Quoting: SunnyDaze


Well I have seen it and this thread is the only reason I come to this site. It doesn't mean doom to me and perhaps it is just some atmospheric anamoly. But it is interesting. Fun thing is to watch all the people who venemetly try to discredit what people are seeing. I remember all the "it's Venus idiot" threads and they didn't hang around, but they just won't let go on this one. Why?

So Astro...what is this V-shaped thing in the videos?

You seemed knowledgeable and credible. I expected this thread to be dead, but it is still going. I do not understand your position/opinion on the videos with this V thing. Please inform. Thanks.

The videos above (of the v-shaped object) are in fact distant contrails showing the same properties that many have described. That is the whole point.

Love how many people with 0 astrological experience. People that typically never look into the sky. Can now all of a sudden spot something there looking for out of the millions of celestial objects in the sky. People don't even bother using a STAR app to see what it is.

Now nobody has found this discovery in the entire world except on GLP. Because you aren't CRAZY your just that fucking smart.

Exactly! Why hasn't anyone shown a video of it in relation to Venus? Interesting.

I took this yesterday. It shows the location of Arcturus and Antares in relation to Venus. No strange object in sight.

No not that one. These: [link to s272.photobucket.com] and [link to s272.photobucket.com]

The pics are so zoomed out there is no way to tell what the object is, but they do look similar to the zoomed out contrails in my videos.

Also, the flaming red color you see in some Youtube videos, like this one -> [link to www.youtube.com] that you like so much, is from Youtube trying to enhance the video. After you upload a video, Youtube offers to improve it (by increasing the contrast & saturation, etc). The problem is, they WAY over do it. Instant fiery comet.

This is what Youtube wanted to do to one of my videos: [link to i439.photobucket.com]

Seriously, after watching my videos how can you not see the objects in the videos you posted are contrails?

Never mind the contrails you've captured don't depict the same shape as the subject of this thread. Did Youtube splice together different videos like your first two? Did Youtube magically make your contrails quickly rise above the skyline and grow larger like in your last two videos? Very much unlike the other videos posted. Did Youtube shuffle together different bit's of the same clips also so you could post more vids?

I'm not buying what you're selling. Sorry about that. Am sure you probably spent most of the night working on that project. Maybe you can take solace in the idea you've wasted other peoples time as well.

My re-posting SunnyDaze pics was in response to a request to show proof of the same thing being seen in the same place on different days. They are not really convincing of much else other than giving a general idea of what was being seen. BTW SD still reports seeing it, whether permitting, claims to know the difference between it and a contrail, and doesn't behave like a con artist.

Can you make the same claims? n/m don't answer

I've violated my "do not feed the shill policy" too much already.

They look exactly like the objects in the videos you posted here. I bet if I would have posted my videos as an AC, only showing you the parts I wanted you to see, you would have gladly accepted them as proof of the object. LOL. You're too intellectually dishonest to admit it :

edit: only the first video is spliced. Duh, that's why I called it a compilation.


My favorite. Too bad the original audio is gone though;

Same observer different day;

This is the one that kicked off the thread. Ho hum compared to the others imo but with the claim by the witness that it has been observed repeatedly in the same area low on the horizon and how tiny and distant it appears with out zoom it is intriguing;

Yet another one of a 'contrail' lacking the symmetry one would expect to see. Hmmm... ;



Those videos are just the best examples of what I have gleaned so far from the first 60 pages.

Whatever IT is or is not, IT is brightly shining right now, in the SW in central NC. Has only been "up" for a little bit and will quickly go away. But, before IT sets, it is the most brilliantly shining thing in the sky. ohyeah

The video titled Comet after Sunset Sept 27, 2013 is exactly what I saw in the sky from Norman Oklahoma probably about the same time... 9-27-2013... saw it a couple of times and not been able to catch it since. I have been observing contrails and chemtrails for nearly 20 years and this caught my eye as something I had never seen before...
