I woke up today on Christmas in a mood to find out what phenomenon I experienced 3 days earlier on the 22nd of December 2015 don’t really know the time exactly but it was after 11pm South African time .
I was laying on the sleeper couch on the balcony looking at the stars . I have a very open mind so I’m constantly looking in the sky all the time because it feels like I never want to miss seeing something I would love to. I then got the feeling that I really just want to see something for a sense of astonishment (even if it was just a shooting star) I sat for about 20 minutes then lay on my side and could then see more stars ,including the southern cross.
I lay like this for only about five minutes and I was looking at the southern cross mostly the whole time , noticing the equalatral triangle and the faded star on the left which give the illusion of a pyramid .Then my imagination was drawn to making the lines for the southern cross when suddenly where the two points meet and make a cross blinks a bright star for about 2 seconds then off . I was confused for only about 4 seconds when I noticed it pop popped up 20cm (my view obviously ) North North West for 2 seconds then off . Straight away I thought this might be travelling in a straight line . I looked 20 cm North North west of where I previously saw it blink for the second time so that I could see it for longer and boom it popped up again . I did the same once more and it blinked just under the lining of the balcony roof for 2 seconds then off.
unexplained blinking stars .I can try draw it or make a video of it if you want so I can explain it better If you didn’t understand.
If you can tell me or can give me details to who maybe can would be amazing because I would love to know what it was and I can’t find it on the Internet .
