Have you checked heavens above?

Jupiter does seem to be rather bright right now, it has been catching my eye for about 2 weeks now. Any chance high cloud cover could obscure the view on certain nights?

I just got star chart. The light was there earlier, but gone. Not Venus.

I am wondering if it could be Hubble?..Or the space station?.....Maybe when the sun hits it just right on the solar panels?

Will look more into it on my day off. I saw it on my way way home, and the wife saw it.

Sakari, you are aware that sky moves overhead and that Venus is only up for a coupla hours?  And that later, another bright star will have moved to a vaguely similar height, if not azimuth? ( eg Fomalhaut, Canopus, Rigel or Sirius, Procyon or Jupiter being likely candidates at the moment, depending on where you are looking..

You really need to carefully note the time and your direction of view (N, E, SW..?) and the angular height above horizon.  Horizon = 0 degrees, overhead = 90, a fist at arms length is about ten degrees, btw...

Could be a stationary satellite that turns it's reflectors into the sunlight to keep it charged. That could be why it is there,
then isn't.

It´s not ISS or Hubble as both are moving very quickly around the planet.

Download STELLARIUM, it´s interaktiv, for free and a very good tool for star-friends. You can add your location and it will show you always whats going on up there (conventional). Don´t talk, try it!

I see that from where you are, the observatory is to the Southwest. That could mean your light is a satellite in a geosynchronous orbit over the equator well to the West of you, which would explain both its apparent non-movement and on-and-off nature (it would be in sunlight well into your night, but not all night).

Thank you all.

I am pretty sure it is Venus. I think the suggestion another star was there later may be it. I did first tell my wife it was a planet. It was when she said " why is it gone then ".....Then it came back.

Power of suggestion....I hit it, hook, line, and sinker.

I used Sky chart, and Venus lines up.

President Jimmy Carter once reported Venus as a UFO. Claimed it was following him, I believe.
