Large “Star” Over Maitland

Ok, so I was sitting on my front porch at about 4am on the 21st March 2014 with a house mate when she pointed out to me a large star sitting low in the sky. She said she had seen it before on other mornings at around the same time. It looked like a star but looked about 5 times bigger than the biggest star I had ever seen. As we watched we saw it sway side to side as it slowly travelled higher in the sky. It was obviously very far away so the movement looked slow though I figure it was probably moving at a massive speed. I know that it is not a star and I’m extremely curious to find out exactly what it is. It appears once every couple of days around the same time and in the same area.

  1. Hi There, I read your story and funny tho my wife and i saw it lastjnight again. i did some hunting and that you see is the NASA space station.. My wife says it cant be…

  2. I saw the same thing. I live in Hanover, pa and tonight 10/26/2014 around 11pm I was taking at the trash when I looked up and saw what appeared to be a star at first but was brighter then the other stars around it. I continued to stare at it for a few minutes watching it flicker and sway from side to side (sometimes fast and sometimes slow) it appeared to have lights around it as well blinking ever few minutes or so. some were red or white or green near the “star”. it seem to get closer then farther away and at a few points it looked to have a out line around it that looked like a disk that would just flash for a second or two then disappear
