  1. I was just about to report the same thing
    I saw it overhead while smoking outside, it appeared to move from South to North in that direction, dim and bright flashing moving in a straight line but around 10pm tonight. possibly the same that you saw

    • I saw the same thing ..

    • i saw one last night while smoking also, it went super bright then slowly dim then it would be a tiny red dot then it would go bright again over and over. not moving either

    • My boyfriend and I have been sitting out side the last 2 nights around 830 both nights and has seen it. It’s kinda scary anyone figure anything out?

      • I’ve been curious as to what this “star-like” light is outside my bathroom window. Every time I am so drawn to it. Two nights ago I was looking intently through the blinds at it and it started getting brighter then dimmer then dissapeared. Three seconds later it re-appeared. It was a clear sky. I see it many times and I am so drawn to it. I can’t believe that its a planet because of the way it seems to stare at me and communicate. I brought my girlfriend in to see it. I told her it dissapears and comes back. I went dissapear for me. Two Seconds later it dims out and dissapears and my girlfriend gets kind of freaked out saying what is that? I will be observing more. I have one picture of it, I need more photos and evidence.

        • I too saw this about a week ago. There was this some kind of star which was disappearing and reappearing repeatedly. It can’t be a dying star as they don’t go dim so quickly and come back out again. Maybe be a pulsating quasar, emitting some electro-magnetic waves in beams.

      • I saw the same thing except ot was following me and my family

        • I see one of these too. Almost every night. I get paranoid about it, though i cant imagine anything would want to bore itself of that. Haha.
          It starts off looking like a satelleite maybe, but within a 2nd or 2 of me noticing it, it then slowly shoots off into space (like a ship into the galaxy if i use my imagination.)
          Then if i stand there for a few minutes, it slowly comes back. Like it had more to do and hoped i was gone.
          Curious minds do wonder… And wander.

      • I saw the same thing when I was on my way home. But after a while it was flashing blue.

        • I see this bright light for several nights in a row then I don’t see it for a few days then it’ll come back again. Its hard to explain but the first time I’ve seen it i was on my way home and saw what I could of sworn was the star of David glowing so bright and high in the sky. I was watching it and noticed its glow going in and out, bright then dimming out. I also noticed it was not stationary, it was following me. Once I got in my driveway I looked up through my windshield and saw the object was moving in almost slow-mo directly above my car. It was so low to the ground it was about two and a half story building high. I stuck my head out of my window and watched it slowly fly past me, my house, the trees. It was all black with no bright light as it was directly over me. It was very unevenly shaped with a bunch of small lights all over the bottom. I couldn’t even tell what shape it was. It was also somebody in the car that witnessed this with me. I’ve seen it numerous times following me and had it fly directly over my car twice and both times was black, metal for the most part flat underside, no noise what so ever and at a distance is a bright light. I have no idea what or who it is but I’ve come to conclusion that it is someone or something from a different dimension, only because the only way into another dimension is using a certain kind of LIGHT “ship”. Our man kind flying objects are not made of light, what I see following me IS made of light. One night I was driving home and hadn’t seen the light in a couple weeks so I called out like I was having a conversation with somebody and asked whoever it was following me, if they could show themselves that night because I hadn’t seen it in a while. Right after I asked that, I watched the light appear before my eyes in the sky.

    • I’m in Australia, Queensland and have gone to bed around the same time the past two nights an both nights I look out my window looking toward southwesterly direction an see this really bright light and does the same thing, flickers white, red an green it dimmed out then reappeared again an I did this a few times. I really focused on it to watch it more intently an it moved! An a couple of hours later after watching this go on it just disappeared

      • I was sitting outside with my wife and around 930 I noticed a bright light on the southern sky, I thought it was a plane coming to land into one of the air bases nearby. However I kept an eye on it and it started to dim, I didnt think much of it and lost track of it, then about 10min later reappeared high up almost in top our residence, I told my wife and said look this light is getting brighter and got dimmer and but it was moving at steady pace, then it got dark. We tried to look yo see if it reappeared, then about ten min later reappeared like north west of us. Same thing really bright then dims until it dissapeared. It isnt a plane or falling star or satellite, I know the difference.

  2. Hi,
    Has anyone figured out what this light is? We saw it last week (Lydenburg) We first thought it might just be a “nice view” of Venus and dismissed it. The next evening it was not there though. We did not see it for a few days, and tonight it was back. The light stays stationary (a plane flew by so we could clearly see the differance and that it was not a plane), it only dims – basically disappearing – and then comes back to a VERY bright white light. Any ideas?

    • I looked it up on line. But could not find any natural phenomenon that accurately describes what I saw. Could not have been an airplane or a star disappearing behind a cloud. Just impossible.

      • I seen a star do the same thing today just before dawn and I was so fascinated. I ruled out all the possibilities of it being a plane or something of the sort. I’m so confused. But with the one I saw, it shot out something like a white tinted clear round orb out really fast. But that star is always there. Always. Vanishing for the first time and reappearing in front of me

    • I’ve seen this twice now!

  3. Just happened here in American fork utah it was amazingly bright my girl and I were watching it then all of a sudden it dimmed out and turned into like 8 objects and disappeared. I was taking pictures of it and it was the most amazing thing I have ever seen.

  4. Where are the pic’s Matt? Pretty much sounds to me like upper clouds moving over the view of the bright star. Pic’s would be cool though…. I am forever curious.

  5. I am in south Africa. Tonight I was driving looking up towards Arcturus. Suddenly I saw a very bright star, to the left of it, that flashed twice and dissappeared. Did anyone else see that ?
    Very strange any ideas what it was ?

    • It was at around 7:15pm

    • Tonight over Southeastern PA about 9pm I saw the same thing a little left of between Phad and Megrez in the big Dipper. Looked like a star, but much brighter by about 3x. Didn’t seem to move at all. I was looking at the big Dipper for a moment. Looked away to talk to my dog. Looked back and there it was. Started to dim quickly and then it was gone. I kept looking in the same spot and reappeared after about 7 seconds or so and dimmed quickly again lasting for about 2 – 3 seconds each time I saw it. It didn’t slowly appear in the sky. It just appeared bright and dimmed. Was pretty cool.

    • Christian Quintero

      Holy f, saw this last night when I was at a forest in Colombia. Except it started moving upwards slowly first.

      • Sheree Hilliard

        Saw this same exact thing in Millerstown Pennsylvania (near Harrisburg) 2 nights in a row at the exact same times and dissapeared as well at the exact same time both nights!

  6. So i’ve been seeing that same thing from my bedroom window since this July… Does anyone know what it is? It usually disappears around 4 A.M. but this time it stayed till 6 : 30 A.M.

  7. Any news about this star, ive been observing it for days, i just keep on staring at it las 3days ago, and i decided to tale a shower but then when i comes out and look for it its gone no where to be found, and just to night i seen it again., i satre at it again for about 5mins , its bright light is fascinating but then i have to do something, and when i comes back to starr at it again ita already gone., im wondering what might it be., im here in north jeddah saudi arabia

    • I have been observing a star for the past few months now. It’s hard not to notice it, because it’s very bright and big. What’s strange is it’s not there all the time unlike the other stars. But at the moment I stare at it, it disappears. It’s the same position always in the western sky.

  8. Perhaps its a star going supernova. Or an irridium flash from a satellite (doubtfull)
    Heres a Nasa article of something similar https://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/swift/bursts/star_burst.html

  9. James Michael Church

    Bout 3am. Ssw sky. Bout 40 to 45 degree from horizon. Bright star. No clouds. Bright star. To nakid eye looked like 4 dots clustered together. Got very bright then went dim then got realy bright then almost gone then came back then went away then got bright. Watched bout 10 to 15 min. Did this over and over. Bright was longer time. Was not moveing at all. Any ideas? No not a starlight or shooting star. In Moscow Idaho. thanks

    • Del Sanborn

      We have been watching the same thing for the last two nights! My sky view app says it is Jupiter. That does not account for the brughtening and dimming that it does on a regular basis. Never seen anything like it. Right inthe SSW sky right out our back door. Sandpoint Idaho.

  10. On a clear night sky, A yellow star that seems to be flickering green red but was dominatly yellow disapereas. It was facing South below the moon. I watched it for a few minutes before going inside. I come back out and it’s gone.

  11. I saw a yellow star that disappeared and reappeard. It flashes twice and now I can’t see it anymore. It happened last night too around 11:00 pm same as today. I’m so much curious “is it a star or not”.

  12. I saw a yellow star that disappeared and reappeared. It flashes twice and now it completely disappeared. I just saw one last night too around 11:00 pm same as tonight. I’m so much curious though “is it a star or not?”

  13. It is Tuesday June 26, 2018 and I live in Marrero, Jefferson parish and I was looking out my front window at what I thought was the brightest star I have ever seen and then it just disappeared and came back a few seconds later and it looked like it was casting out little lights from its right side, the lights being cast out were tiny, it almost looked like as if someone would throw sprinkles. I whatched this form 10:00pm to 10:15pm. , it is still in the sky but not moving at all and I really do not believe that it is a star and it’s definitely not a plan. But the strange thing about when it disappeared was that the light went out and it had a weird shape in the dark and then got really bright again. Has anyone else around Louisiana-Jefferson parish seen this happen in there area.

    • Yes I see it in Shreveport louisiana

    • I see this every single night in Central Indiana. Literally exactly as yours describing. I started watching closer and it literally disappears. Almost every night. Just gone. I have also seen it blink and move like an aircraft. I thought I was losing it until I made my wife sit and watch and she saw it do all the same things

  14. I saw the same thing. Really bright star. But it started to disappear and a flashlight looking glow emitted from the top as the bottom half disappeared and then it just went dark leaving a cloud or smoke or light looking spot in its place for approx 3 minutes before it gradually appeared and became bright once more without the glowing light. I thought it was a satellite but tonight its in the exact same spot at the same time as last night. No disappearing tonight though.

  15. I’m in Cleveland, OH and this is the second time I’ve seen this bright firey light. It fades in and out and doesn’t move much. You would think it was the brightest “star” in the sky and all of a sudden goes dim. I have no clue what it could be but would love to know. I’ll continue doing research and keeping my eyes to the sky…

  16. Saw a bright orange star that went dull then bright about every minute or so it continued for while but had to go inside because of the cold but when it went dull it looked like there was two stars very close together. I had saw at Bonnie Doon Melbourne Australia did anyone know what it was 20/7/18

  17. Mars is extremely bright and orange and will be for the next 16 years. About 5 nights ago was the brightest I’ve ever seen any star (planet) in 27 years. Been seeing many weird sightings lately but people should be aware of the Mars situation.

    • I think my husband and I have seen what you all are describing.. Just tonight we were watching the Meteor shower in Northwestern West Virginia, USA and we kept looking at this bright star but it was blueish and whitish and we kept getting drawn to it.. Very strange well right beside it there are 3 dimmer stars and all of a sudden out of nowhere I see a bright white light flash once or twice and I told my husband to look and we both watched it flash 2 more times and then went out. It was not a plane or moving at all.. that’s what my first thought was that it was a plane or something but no..It literally looked like someone had a very bright flashlight and just turned it on and off and then it disappeared.. Has anyone figured out what it is?? It was pretty much directly over us.. we were laying on our backs and had seen many meteors tonight but that was something I had never seen!

  18. I live in mobile Alabama and have seen the same thing. The light appears then disappears and the reappears in a different place.

  19. Hi live in South Africa and the bright start seems to be brighter by the day (night)..

  20. I’ve been experiencing the same thing, a very bright orange star (It could almost be described as burning, as it flickers on and off every couple of minutes). It’s located south – east in the night sky (In mecklenburg vorperman, Germany). I originally believed it to be a dying star but seeing all these other accounts of the same phenomenon, I am now not so sure of myself as it would have died by now…

    Any ideas as to what it may be? It’ll be great to find out and will finally put my mind at ease ?

  21. stephen richardson

    I have seen the same thing in Welington New Zealand.
    Comment above which I also have seen in exact same detail – “Bright star. To nakid eye looked like 4 dots clustered together. Got very bright then went dim then got realy bright then almost gone then came back then went away then got bright”

  22. Ive seen it here in the Caribbean it appears big and bright…then it disappears for a day or two then reappear…it would be visible for lets say 2 hours then disappears for a few then reappears…no clouds clear skies….so strange…star or ship??

  23. Ive seen it here in the Caribbean it appears big and bright…then it disappears for a day or two then reappear…it would be visible for lets say 2 hours then disappears for a few then reappears…no clouds clear skies….so strange…star or ship??

  24. We are looking at it now but the crazy thing is it was completely south of us & the only thing in the sky besides it is one white star that was a little higher to the west of it. Went in for a minute & came back out & the star was still in same spot but the orange thing had moved to the north of us a major distance. So odd. We have been seeing it & it fade away, comes back & once waited & saw it fade back into the distance like moving backwards & Gabe been seeing this since June & us & others saw it move across the sky looked up & pointed & it stopped. No kidding. We were seeing two at one time. In different spots. This is weird & cannot be a planet or anything. I want to know what it is!?! Maybe it’s just a God thing. It’s like it turns it’s lights out then will go to lookin like a regular star.

  25. Just saw something similar. Dim light moving then it would shine very brightly in irregular intervals. It moved east then quickly changed course to the south west.
    Phenomena lasted approximately 5-7 mins
    I am in southern Alberta.

  26. This evening, around 9pm, I observed in NE sky a flashing bright light that I thought most likely was a plane or satellite at first, however, the light became stationary after moving a short distance. It brightly flashed a few more times, then slowly faded. I got the impression it was moving away rather than disappearing as it seemed to be getting smaller before it was gone.

    • Diane du Preez

      I saw this too, same time, just before 9pm. But in the West or NW. I think its Venus. It sets at this time in South Africa. It looks very odd disappearing and reappearing then eventually fading and gone out of site. Hard to understand how this works but planets rise and then set. Like the sun I suppose. Planets are wandering stars according to the bible.

      • Jason Green

        Don’t believe what the bible tells you about the stars and planets. It is simply NOT a good source.

  27. Ive been seeing stars move alot lately Ive even seen up to two or three move in different directions. Clearly it is Gods glory for only God can do such extraordinary works.

  28. Oct.12 2018 me and 3 other of my friends witnessed this last night! it didn’t move. but I went out to smoke and noticed it get really bright out of the corner of my eye. So I decided to watch it for a little bit naturally curious and then it dimmed completely out, no light at all! Then it came back this is about the time my friends showed up and I told them about it and sounding like a crazy person because it was really bright and looked like a regular star now. as I’m telling them about what just happened watching it of course it dimmed out turned kinda red before the light disappeared again for probably a minute and dimmed back in!!! this time everyone was there to witness it, one of the craziest things I’ve ever seen!

    • Jason Green

      I saw almost exactly that. But there was no red. Very surprising to see. Did you find any explanation anywhere?

  29. Hidden secrets

    I am from Northeast part of Georgia near Athens where UGA is located. I’ve been experiencing the same sightings for almost a yr now. I have been telling my family that I have a friend that comes to visit every now and then. It’s usually every night though. An amazingly bright light. To bright to be a star and definitely not an airplane. I know for sure it’s not an bc we have two small airports in the town next to me. I’m use to seeing and hearing those day n night. So when you notice something like this it really stands out. I have one extremely bright light that is usually right in my front yard. There is also two more I see every night on each side of the house but a lot further in distance. I thought I was perhaps losing my mind and turning into one of those crazy ppl everyone laughs at. You know those ppl screaming UFOs abducted me. That is until my 14 yr old niece was walking with me one night outside after dark. I have a very long driveway and I live in the country. I was pregnant and trying to get some exercise. When we first came out to go for our walk. I notice the extremely bright light. I pointed at it and said look there’s my friend. I even giggled bc my niece looked perplexed. I said that thing is always there then it just disappears like someone turn a light switch off. Sometimes it just shots straight up in the air and disappears within a sec. She giggled and brushed it off. As we were walking I told her I was serious and I wasnt crazy lol. She said it’s just a really bright star. So we stood there and was about to start comparing it to other stars when all the sudden it shot up and disappeared. It all happened within a sec. She started to freak out. It shocked her so bad she wanted to go in. The next night we come back out and sure enough it was there again. It’s usually always in the same spot. If not it’s only slightly moved. She freaked out and said omgosh it’s back. We were outside maybe 10 mins watching it bc now she is amazed. Then it goes dim this time and disappears. Now when shes here with my other niece and nephews. She will point it out and tell me my friend is back. Then tells everyone the story. It’s nice to have her as a witness. I was beginning to think I was losing my mind. It’s not here every single day now its every couple of days now. I have just accepted that i have seen a unexplainable and unidentified object a bunch of times now. I don’t know what others believe but I believe in God wholeheartedly. I now also believe that there are others in the universe. I think we couldnt possible be the only ones seeing these and I’m positive we are just the ones not being told about them. I’ve watched enough movies and know so many ex military personnel to know. If we see these bright lighted objects then so can the government and scientists. They have to have been researched by now. The sightings have gone back to the beginning of area 51 days . Now the news stations are reporting them. You gonna tell me with the technology and the advancements in technology every single day. That nobody has every looked into this?!?! Nah not believable. There wouldn’t be sighting this close and this often going unnoticed and unattended by the government we have.

  30. Yeah I’m from Connecticut, the greater Hartford area and i’ve seen this for the past couple nights. Quite strange indeed.

  31. Saw what sounds like this in South NJ USA this early morning. A bright object towards the south. Took binoculars out, was definitely not a plane. Referenced stargazing app on phone, not a registered celestial object within the solar system. Flight tracker app said it’s not a plane. Watched it for almost an hour as it moved at the rate of the rotation of the planet. White, dimming from the brightness of moon – with ~1/6 diameter – to 1/4 brightness of the moon. Had a unique hue with more towards its bottom, could be from haze/atmosphere. Bottom hue had coloring to it, greens/reds. Brightest “star” in the sky by far. Was thinking supernova? Weird with Christmas being a few days away… Will check tomorrow night.

  32. Durban- South Africa

    So it’s 3am and I’m awake.
    The bed happens to face the glass door and I noticed this cross like bright light in the clear yet navy sky .. amazed I decided to stare and a few minutes later the cross dimmed. Strange though because there were no clouds. It kept dimming and seemed to be moving away. Certain it was not a plane.

    Hmmm anyone with feedback?

  33. Uk. 6:30-7:00 am sat watching the brightest star in the sky from bedroom windows.its soooo bright and then slowly dims and then disappears some seconds later reappears. It’s not moving from it’s spot it’s so stranger

  34. Antonio "Grrr" Fredericks

    Hi all, in Durban South Africa. spotted this same bright/dim star early hours of the morning around 3am. been watching it for like an hour…. it does act stranger than the other stars and there does seem to be some movement but i dont think its in sync with the movement of the other stars. it really gets so bright that there is actually a very radiant glow/aura around it. It sure does leave me with more wonders about this flat earth

  35. Wellington, New Zealand… bout 4am saturday 27th April 2019 …Saw this star while smoking a cigarette with my girl. I’m a stargazer and not much gets me excited but this really done my head in. It was near the moon and turned on and off 5 times.. on for 5secs then off for 5secs… wtf???????

  36. I’m in Napier, New Zealand and we have seen the same thing. It’s been in the sky for a few weeks. It gets really bright and then disappears. Some nights it doesnt come back or it won’t stay viable for the full night. I sit out there for hours gazing wondering exactly what it is.

  37. Jthomas92@gmail

    Western colorado here. Ive been seeing it the past few day but has anyone noticed what would appear to be a lightning flash when you see this bright light but not a single cloud in the sky? Its trippin me out lol. Any ideas?

  38. I live in Johannesburg South Africa and for the last 4 weeks most mornings between 4-530 am I’ve also seen this “ Star “ that caught me eye like a flash of lightning but so quick and as I stared counting the seconds before the next bright flash it had traveled an immense distance and basically went from my line of vision West to East right across the Horison travelling at an incredible speed .. and within maybe 4-6 seconds it had traversed the entire span of my vision of the morning Skyline . Too fast compared to ordinary satellites which I see often in the early evening and morning. Not a star or meteor . It’s had me intrigued for weeks . Thought I was hallucinating!! But it’s definitely real and the brightest fastest object I’ve ever seen in the night skies!!

  39. Ps I forgot to add that it also fades no vanishes after seeing the blinding flash it just vanishes from sight and I watch the sky intently and after about 1- 1 1/2 second it reappears a huge flash but thousand of kilometers further in distance . So all in all it travels across my line of view in the space of about 5 seconds flashes maybe 4-6 times and has traveled this huge distance in a few seconds

    • I’ve seen this exact even with my friend, I called him out to see it . Bright almost blue quick sequence of flashes almost like Morse code , then disappears and seconds later in a very long distant part of the sky , way too fast for any aircraft or satellite.. we both could not explain what we were seeing .. this is in Australia , Queensland, Sunshine Coast about 10pm…
      how is it so many people see these things all across the world (that’s the ones that report, 10% if your lucky) and no astronomers are bringing this up ?!
      We are only using naked eyes on random nights looking up..

  40. Hi from Durban, RSA. i really do wonder what it could be, i cannot say i witnessed much movement from the star when i saw it early this year but it was moving.

    Any1 have any footage of it by any chance?

    • I would like to photograph it but it’s so so quick … one would have to have a camera already set up and or maybe a video already filming at around the time one thinks it may appear . Since I’ve posted my previous comment I’ve not seen it again but this morning around 530 am I did see two strange phenomena. A quick flash right up in the sky on south east side . I kept looking to see if it would reappear maybe a satellite? But after 10 minutes nothing . Then about 15 minutes later I saw exact same bright white flash ( like someone flashing a torch light on and off) very bright just once on north eastern skyline this time . I kept looking for movement or anything more but there was nothing more . It has me really wondering !

  41. Saw a crazy bright star in Orem Utah last night. All of the other stars in the sky looked weak compared to this one. My husband and I were driving southbound on the freeway when we both noticed it just to the right of the freeway in the sky. I opened my Night Sky app to see which star it was. It looked like it was where the star Alkaid would be, which is a star I had never heard of. I wondered why we had never heard of such a bright star in the sky, by the far the brightest one we could see, brighter than any star I can remember seeing. As we kept driving, the freeway curved left and right a bit and the star was now on the left side of the freeway. Confused, I opened the app again and Alkaid was still supposed to be on the right side of the freeway, but this bright star was in a different spot to the left of the freeway now. I kept saying, “You see that star, right?” to my husband who was driving, and he confirmed that he saw it too (I might’ve thought I was crazy if I had been alone!) We then got off the freeway exit and were stopped at a red light with a bridge that blocked our view of the “star”. It seemed like the longest red light ever because now I was curious what this so-called “star” was, and I was worried it would disappear while we waited there. Sure enough, the light turned green, we passed the bridge, and the star was nowhere to be seen. And no, it wasn’t a light on the bridge, it was definitely in the sky, and we had been viewing it for miles. … I just wish I had been taking pictures or video of it!

  42. perhaps this could be something like the tabby star ?https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tabby%27s_Star

  43. Hi, i live in Robertson Western Cape and this star is also seen here. Very pretty and strange. I would loove an answer as to what it could be too.

  44. Jacksonville, Florida. — I walked outside my parents house to see what appeared to be two very bright stars parallel one another about three inches (if you closed one eye and held a ruler up to the sky to measure). This immediately caught my attention when I stepped out of my garage. They were very bright and then the one light which was above the other faded out and came back. Then they both faded slightly and came back brighter. Then the bottom one would fade out completely and come back. Eventually both disappeared. Staring in a amazement.

    • Just saw the same thing here in NW Missouri. 3 “stars” equal distance apart. Roughly a 45 degree angle to the horizon. Top one would get really bright for a second, then the one below it would get bright as the top one got dim. Then the bottom one got bright as the middle one went dim. Then top one bright and kept rotating through for about 5 minutes before all 3 disappeared.

  45. Every night I come out and to the right there’s a bright star. Then when I go inside and I come out it’s never there.

  46. I literally saw the same thing i thought my mom was crazy when she said it and was like what in the heck is that

  47. Been watching the same thing for about 3 hours in Illinois. It was super bright for about an hour after I noticed it but for the past hour ish it’s been fading in and out and moving. When I first noticed it when it was bright it was barely moving, but then it started moving lower and then later to the right. For a little bit it looked like it was spinning and when it was dim it looked like the light was just shining the opposite way from me. It’s way closer than any stars or air planes. Within the few minutes I was looking at my phone to type this it completely disappeared. Before when it went dim and faded out there was only about 5-10 seconds when I didn’t see it at all, otherwise it was a super faint light. But now it’s completely gone. I saw this when I was in middle school one time, probably like 2012 or 2013 and I watched it from like midnight-4am. This is the first time I’ve seen it since but it was near the same location as the last time I saw it

    Ok so it’s april 6 2020 here in West KY here in Hopkins County city of Madisonville and I go out of my trailer to think and try to look for the comet, but right across the street in the sky I happen to notice this bright looking 🌟 object that I thought could b the north 🌟 but I thought it’s too late for it to come out in the beginning of new year and too early don’t it come out In Dec and winter time? Plus a 🌟 don’t shine that bright it’s dull and dim. Thought it was a planet since its that bright but it shines bright and dims and reappears and continues to do so like it’s playing hide and seek I thought it could also be the comet coming out may 31 so yeah I’m really stumped on this one 😆

    So pleased to find this thread. We thought it was the space station!
    It is beautiful. Red then white, gets brighter and brighter then fades and vanishes. Returns about a minute later.
    Star? Aliens?

  50. I see this bright light for several nights in a row then I don’t see it for a few days then it’ll come back again. Its hard to explain but the first time I’ve seen it i was on my way home and saw what I could of sworn was the star of David glowing so bright and high in the sky. I was watching it and noticed its glow going in and out, bright then dimming out. I also noticed it was not stationary, it was following me. Once I got in my driveway I looked up through my windshield and saw the object was moving in almost slow-mo directly above my car. It was so low to the ground it was about two and a half story building high. I stuck my head out of my window and watched it slowly fly past me, my house, the trees. It was all black with no bright light as it was directly over me. It was very unevenly shaped with a bunch of small lights all over the bottom. I couldn’t even tell what shape it was. It was also somebody in the car that witnessed this with me. I’ve seen it numerous times following me and had it fly directly over my car twice and both times was black, metal for the most part flat underside, no noise what so ever and at a distance is a bright light. I have no idea what or who it is but I’ve come to conclusion that it is someone or something from a different dimension, only because the only way into another dimension is using a certain kind of LIGHT “ship”. Our man kind flying objects are not made of light, what I see following me IS made of light. One night I was driving home and hadn’t seen the light in a couple weeks so I called out like I was having a conversation with somebody and asked whoever it was following me, if they could show themselves that night because I hadn’t seen it in a while. Right after I asked that, I watched the light appear before my eyes in the sky.

  51. Im in louisiana, its outside now. No matter where the moon and other stars move to its always basically in same place, i know it sounds crazy but it likes to hide behind a big tree we have, like it notices im looking at it. There seem to be some smaller ones that kinda look like rear of a planes in distance that usually start disappearing when i try to get on camera. At first i thought drones, our states one of few studying drone technology for “agriculture” but it stays in same place except slight shifts behind tree or fading in and out whenever i start tryin to concentrate or record it. Plus the drones for rec use only last like 20-30 mins tops, this thing and its lil gaurds stay for hours. I know how ppl react when u mention things like this, ur either crazy or they pretend they dont see anything and rationalize it to themseves so i quit sayin anything.
    Im not screaming aliens, idk who,what, why, when or where, ( prob our own governments) but its something i cant ignore & honestly it makes me uncomfortable. Its nice to know im not alone. Was starting to question my own sanity.Glad i found the article explaining the lines of lights and that space x will be launching 60 more lil satilights for some project that’ll total out in the hundreds 04/18/2020, but this is different. Its like its mimics being a star. It knows when 1 person notices its not & then it fu**’s with you, like haha who u gonna tell. Inquiring minds would like to know. Peace

  52. I first noticed this in the 90s. It appeared over the house Across the street, didn’t move, and would get brighter and dimmer. It’s wasn’t a light. There were no trees, and it did not move. It was not there every night either. It has been bothering me for over 20 years.

    I’m in Cornwall and have posted about this star/light before. Last night at about 10.30pm I saw it again. Was as bright as venus. Was stationary then moved very slowly across the sky for a short distance then completely vanished. I didn’t see it again. It was a clear night. Am going to look again tonight, have seen it many times now and can never find out what it is, it never fits any explanation! Glad I’m not the only one to keep seeing it!

    Hello everyone, I never comment on internet posts but I feel as if I need to jump in…. I know what the “star” is. And it’s absolutely incredible. In order to share with you the full glory of it, I’d have to spend the entire day just typing out what transpired one night here in Ontario this March 2020, and I think I’d like to start a youtube story just to share the detailed full story and speak of the teachings I’ve received from the universe through my solo-journey into the unbelievable unknowns of the night skies over the past months that have passed since then in a more public way. I have shown only under a dozen people of my newfound abilities, ironically, none of my family nor the people I would have considered friends even CARE to see and simply refuse to be bothered to look when I beg them to look outside or believe me experiencing anything extraordinary, infact they can be downright rude…. I find this very disappointing.. Thus, the only people I show are either coincidentially there walking their dog or going about their life outside or heard about me and doubt before they see and go running for their lives (every.dang.time). I always try to point it out to anyone because HELLO IT’s AMAZING.. BEST THING TO EVER HAPPEN TO ME/ay human that experiences ths gift.. no big deal.. For now, to get to the point, it’s an initial sign/contact/message from beings of light, with divine powers to alter reality in our 3d dimension. They can hear your words and thoughts. For example, less than an hour prior to my sighting, unknowningly while talking with an acquaitance I was attempting to help with an issue and while in his apartment (Whom I refer to as my “patient-zero”.. more on that one day…) I just randomly said something right along the lines of “When I die, if I could recreate the world, I would make it with purple skies and neon plants, this much green is boring”.It was just a random thought that came out while mindlessly hanging out in his kitchen. fast forward…. go outside, never cared about stars before but when i looked up i had the huge star getting bigger then shrinking back out and in/out many times, but we noticed it was clearly resonding to me speaking and saying “come back!” and then “i think it’s conscious of me?”… all of a sudden it cycled and flashed through allllll colours rapidly before being done.They knew me. In my heart, I felt I loved them so deeply and knew them too…they are my family. This light phenomena was possibly 2 mins max. Then over the next 6h, THE most magical and out of this world custom adventure took place(which I need that youtube channel to make public rather than type till exhaustion). This ended in me crying (NOT something common for me whatsoever) because at the seemingly determining moment of this advensure/mission/test that together we navigated, the was -something- waiting for us around the corner making loud banging noises/shifting the lighting/growling/gurgling?, which had also prepared a perfect circle and triangle made from unknown animal prints (he’s a hunter) in the snow before the bend around the corner, I knew I had to decide couldnt take him with me which I felt ruined my personal chance to go meet this thing, because somehow I knew I had to basically ask him if he was pure of soul or deeply wanted to be….(I KNOW THIS ALL SOUNDS SO WEIRD BUT LIFE IS WEIRD SO BEAR WITH ME..) and he hesitated, so after a ton of questioning and attepting to have him be a suitable human male I could take with me to the other side of the bend where whatever that being was was waiting for us, (I somehow knew we would both need to be fearless and of pure heart) I had to decide to stop the mission and not proceed around the corner with him. That’s why and when I started crying and turned around to walk back to his apartment and go home upset. I thought I lost all chances of leaving this dump of an evil-ridden, dying earth and finally being with “MY people:'(” I had always thought I was very different than “these people”, knowledgeable in a very diverse range of information,awarded in mathematics/sciences/arts/etc., yet always ridiculed by others surrounding me because I’m an attractive blonde female with a positive and non-judgemental attitude towards all people from all walks of life, except for those who inflict unnecessary hurt onto other life. We were only minutes away, and by the time we got to his apartment and I was still upset he didn’t choose to want pure good, that’s when it happened. The most incredible day of my life. I call it, “The Decent”. So… the skies instantly went PURPLE!!!!!!! and i gasped nd said “THE PURPLE SKIES!”, the star popped back in and quickly flow over above and the clouds that seemed to be not like the rest just parted left and right, and I KID YOU NOT…… ******A FREAKING UFO!!!!!!***** (textbook flying-saucer type) SWEPT DOWN IN A VERY UNIQUE SIDE TO SIDE AND DOWNWARD ZIG-ZAG MOTION…. poofing out a veil of soft cloud assumingly to conceal it. So we both look at eachother for a second out of the pure shock of this actually happening exactly as it all had that night, and I just walked straight towards it hovering at probably about a 4-story level in the sky above the parking lot saying “tell my family and that I love them”, i took a few steps and it was obvserving me although I didnt see any beings, just the vehicle that night. I glanced back and he was probably about <100m behind me, hadnt moved, looked scared. I was ready to get beamed up or SOMETHING idk, an they just turn around in a semi circle like any u-turn and slowly just… drove off…. opposite direction. I was almost offended, which I think back to and laugh at from time to time still. Ever since I've been having the most incredible life-aadventures I would have never even guessed could be possible to happen to anyone. Ever. I'm just trying to figure out what I'm capable of and what the universe would like from me now. I went from never caring about the stars to literally devoting my life to this. To make matters better, my name is Greek and it littrally translates to Butterfly (Metamorphosis) Priest. I was born for this. So yea… I saw this and just wanted to chime in with my story because THAT STAR that's following you or flashing in a way youve never seen before, is an intellligent being and it has something to communicate with you. The journey you will embark on should you decide to continue to entertain it will not be an easy one, not will it always be pleasant. There's so much magic always going on behind the scenes of what we can see going on in the background work of life. How far will you go to find out what is truly going on and your purpose is the question you need to ask before embarking on your journey of discovery. A few things that could percievably negatively impact your life may include loss or distance from of your friends/family/serious relationships who probably do not respect you or your "stupid alien bs" enough to ask, listen, research, or look for themselves, backyard neighbours ridiculing you wondering "wth is he/she staring at" to the point where they think you must be retarded and deaf because they talk about you with full-on disguist to their guests explaining their house came with a burden not mentioned in the listing of some girl "putting on a show for attention" (-this was literally said by a father of teens that lives in the house behind mine..who has never spoken to me… financial struggles, sleep cycle and nutrition changes, frightening encounters, the list is endless. For me, I would say YES to this experience a billion times over, it has MADE my life. That's all I can type for one comment today, thank you all for reading and may you all be blessed and protected by the light!!!!

      This is totally way cool. I definitely thought whatever it was appeared conscious of me, though it would do this whole hide and seek thing, where it would assend up into the sky and disappear, then a few moments later, it would reappear. I was pretty mesmerized by it, though I didn’t quite know what to make of it. and Anyone standing around (usually strangers in my case), just look at me like I am nuts any time I say “woah, check it out. or you didn’t see that?!” but wicked awesome to hear your story. much cooler and way interesting experience! i’d definitely be interested in the youtube video, if you happen to get around to it!

    • Vanessa Maria Pappas that is very interesting! It does seem far fetched but I realize what your saying and it does make sense… I have seen it three nights in a row and at first I felt nervous and afraid but the more I stared took pics and thought to myself I felt at ease like it was trying to tell me something . So when I took my camera and took pics of it and when i zoomed in all the way it resembled a number 7 so Distinct and so perfect very bright and vibrant, I think about that and I take it seriously… so what could the number 7 mean? When I looked on the calendar 7 days would be September 1st so I don’t know if it had anything to do with that… it’s buggin me out because I want to know, I NEED to know!!

  55. Me and my friend saw a bright star flashing in different sequences then going dark and reappear in a totally different part of the sky. It then began the sequence again like Morse code , disappears and reappears in another far distant part of the sky way too far for any aircraft to travel in seconds…. this went on for about 10 minutes

  56. I just saw a bright star in the sky at around 21:00 in The Netherlands, about a hand in with of the right of a clear visible moon.
    There were NO other stars visible yet in the sky, but only a very unusually bright star/light that was slightly shimmering and standing absolutely still.
    My eye caught its attention simply because it was so bright and the only one visible which made it seem odd, because how can I see only one star in the entire sky 360 degrees around me? After trying to confirm for my self if it was moving or not, i positioned myself so that the light would be visible inside a frame of branches that were standing still so I could observe movement if it were to move to one or the other end of the branches.
    Yet it did not, after staring at it for almost a minute or more it started fading away within a window of 3-4 seconds.
    due to the moon it was very clear that it was not clouds that covered the light, because I could clearly see where the clouds would start far east of the star so it was NOT overlapping at the time of fading.
    A very strange observation.
    So I observed it to be:
    – not moving
    – the only visible light in the sky other than the moon
    – it being brighter than any star i ever witnessed
    – having no blinking lights like a airplane (red/blue)
    – fading out while critically observing it within 3-4 seconds.

    If anyone has the slightest idea what i just saw that would be much appreciated…
