Coming from Lancaster, PA and heading to York last evening (New Year’s Eve), my family and I noticed a very bright non-moving object in the sky below the Crescent Moon. My hopes of it being a true UFO or even better yet a “Space Station” were quickly dismissed.

When reality set in, further investigation indicates that it was the planet Venus. It was truly a very cool sight to see.

Did anyone else notice Venus last evening under the moon?

    See this is the problem with my living arrangements: I HAVE NO WINDOWS! I always miss out on the fun sky stuff. There was an eclipse in the past couple months too, wasn’t there? Yup, missed that!

    I love any sky phenomenon…next time anyone sees something cool, CALL ME!

    Hey Keri….thanks for the comment.

    I was actually in the process of explaining that it was a planet to my daughter while your comments came through on this post.

    It is very cool to witness.

    I don’t ever remember Jupiter being that big? What the heck is up with that? I was staring at it last night wondering how it got so huge?

    that’s just a bunch of b.s the date here was august 2011 about the 12th the bright shine thing is not a star we were looking at it and it has like almost like search lights coming from it i was thinking a satellite dish but how in the world would a satellite dish be sending out lights like it was generating them?
