Duration:39 min
Fixed bright yellow light mass, emanating multiple sharp, pointed rays all around it

We saw a fixed, very bright yellow starburst shaped object in the night sky above Astoria, Oregon, watched it from 6:30pm till past 7:09. The sky is mostly cloudy with periods of clearing that allows viewing of the object. When viewed through binoculars, the middle portion is a bright yellow lit mass with multiple pointed, sharp rays emanating from it; all the way around.

The object doesn’t seem to move but appears to pulsate at times. It doesn’t look like any star or planet I have ever seen. It seems much closer than stars and planets. I have not noticed the anomaly here before now, 1/15/12. The object is very, very bright with a yellowish sort of light.
