Sighting Reports 2009

Bright Light Seen in Northwest Night Sky

Date of Sighting: March 4, 2009
Location of Sighting: Jacksonville, Florida
Time of Sighting: 7 to 9 PM EST

Description: I happened to take my dogs out in the back yard on 3/4/09 and noticed a bright light in the clear sky. I'm in a rural setting so it is usually very dark. I noticed that it was a clear night since I could detect the stars in the sky. I noticed the light was in the northwest sky. I watched for about 10 minutes and it never moved. I went in the house and told my roommate and he indicated he had seen a light the last few nights. About an hour later we went out again and the same light was still in the same position. I used the corner of the house this time as a reference and continued to watch for about another 10 minutes and again no movement. I decided to get my binoculars for a better look and noticed after locating them (15 minutes later) the light was still there. The light was very bright very white in appearance with a slight dip in the middle. I went back in the house and periodically checked on it's location and it was still there when I went to bed at 10:00 that night.

Note: I am reasonably sure that the witness saw the planet Venus which is very bright in the western sky in the evening. Venus has a magnitude of -4.8 this month.
