Observed bright twinkling object much larger than any in the sky except the moon many times Sept-Nov.

Actually, Nov. 10, is not the first time I observwed this object, or cluster of bright, twinkling lights from my bedroom window and at close to the same time. I watched it for the first time in either late September or early October. 2007, but during this time span, I have seen it on almost a nightly frequency. As was the case on Nov. 10, 2007, it did not appear in the 1 AM-2:30 AM time span I did not see it at all, although I did look for it, but it does not ofteh skip more than one night.

I have never seen it before 1 A.M., and although I get tired and my somethat arthritic neck gets sore if I stare at this object more thas 15 minutes at a time, I have looked for it when I woke up around 2:00 AM and don't recall ever seeing it there at that time. It is always in the sky southwest of my house and usually does not move very noticeably until it has been observable for at least 15 minutes.

At first glance it appears to be a very tight cluster of very bright white lights, but only a minute or so later, I see a bright red light coming from somewhere in the cluster, which seems to be a triangular formation during more of the time I am observing it. It seems to be more the tight cluster while it is standing still and when it is moving on a steady line to my left or right. But when it suddenly begins to dart about, it is impossible to determine its shape. And last night and at least two or three previous nights, one bright white light about the size of the object when I first observe it, breaks off from the original cluster, and then both the originaly cluster and the more or less satellite which mimics the slower movements of the original. If have not watched all this long eough to observe the first object and the second re-unite, but I have obsered that the first one observed and the sattelite never seem to get closer together or farther apart. I cannot say precisely what the spacing is.


Sirius?? PD
