seethe303, you got it.........venus it is!

Skarfer, thanks for not just meeting - but beating - my expectations of how quickly some knucklehead would post a comment about a "dot on a black page". :D

ez, it was a GREAT night to be out with a telescope. my brother called me around 9:00 hollaring that I had to get outside to check out another star and I wound up taking a few pictures of venus. The original star I went outside to look at was very faintly blinking in alternating colors - red, green, blues, etc. it was incredible. I found out later (my brother called the local weatherman) that it was a star whose light was passing through cirrus clouds in our atmosphere, alternately affecting the wavelengths of light that were reaching our planet....hence the different colors (like the "ROYGBIV" spectrum with a rainbow).
