Shape: Light
Duration:15 minutes
Big bright light in low in the western sky at twilight.

I was driving in Anderson Township at twilight to pick up Chinese food on Ohio Pike. I was alone in the car when I noticed a very bright, low hovering light in the western sky toward the downtown Cincinnati direction. It was way too low on the horizon to be a star or planet.

I pulled over in the car and parked where I could have nearby points of reference to see if this object was moving at all. It was not. There were no flashing lights, just a brilliantly bright slightly flickering light.

When viewed through a very low power set of bird watching binocs it took on a 3 pointed shine shape.

I drove to another location a few miles away and over the course of this time it never moved or changed.

((NUFORC Note: Possible sighting of Arcturus of Jupiter in W sky? PD))
