i saw it too, very strange. would light up real bright then it would dim and you wouldn't be able to see it. I saw it around 15 til 5 all the way until 5 o' clock. someone who had been watching it for a while said there were at least 10 jets go by just since he had started watching it.

It isn't Venus, Mecury or Jupiter. They rise or set earlier or later than the time of this sighting. I suspect that it was a star. I don't have my star charts handy, but it could very well be a star. The dimming and brightening is normal due to the starlight travelling through the atmosphere. The atmosphere is particularly thick from our point of view if the star is at a angle such as the eastern sky. The light travesing the atmosphere can be affected by disturbances in the atmosphere. At this time of year when the weather is changing can be especailly bad.

There is a possiblity that the object was some type of aircraft. If it was far away it would not appear to move and, at that distance, you would not necessarily hear it. It is very unlikely that you saw a satellite. The prime time to see satellites are early evening and early morning. Satellites do not have lights, but what you see is the reflection of sunlight which is the very reason you only see them early evening or early mornings. Once the Earth has rotated away from the sun, then no sunlight can hit the satellites.

I've had oveer 35 years of stargazing experience and I have seen many strange sightings. My guess would be that what you saw was a star. I will check my star charts later and try to determine which it is.

I've always wondered what happened to Barsoom. He could have told us exactly what it was. I don't buy that he was a complete fake. He knew something. I think he made himself out to be a fake just to get the heat off of him. WHo admits to being a fake before disappearing? Looks like if he was truly exposed as a fake, he would not bother coming on here and then saying "I'm a fake" then leave. He made it a point to call himself a fake. Not many liars admit things like that. And we can't forget that much of what he said came true. Barsoom, where are you?
