What Is the Bright Light in the Western Sky tonight january 2nd 2012
NOT VENUS! Venus was right next to the moon where it should be. This was slowly moving downward in the sky. Seemed to have hung in the same position & brightness for over 2 hours. Was too low to be a star & it was flickering, as it went away the color changed to more of an orange tint. Looked more like somehting on fire and on its way down. first sighted @ 6:30pm in Mesquite TX lost visibility by 8:00pm.
