Last night (or shall I say 3.30 in the morning) I saw 2 fascinating stars (amazing considering I live in urban sydney with out polluted skies & whatnot).
1) Easily the brightest star in the sky and THE brightest & largest star I have ever seen with the naked eye (Im not exaggerating). It sported more than a mild twinkle, flashing bright white, blue & red. Surreal. Im pretty sure it wasnt an airplane since I stared at it for about 5 mins to make sure (and try to make sense of what I was seeing) & it didnt budge.
2) A coppery red star- very bright, but not twinkling at all, just slightly larger than the average star in size
Does anyone have any idea what star I may have seen?
Someone please enlighten me!
