Starting on Tuesday, October 18th, around 6:30pm, in North Carolina, I noticed that just above the sunset was what I thought was a star.. albeit really bright star, but seemingly just a star. Not to be confused with the Nibiru idea. This does not resemble a second sun, but it looks like a star that just happens to be about 2-3 times larger than even the brightest star visible from here..not as large as the sun, or moon. It stood out because I stare at the sky everyday into the evening and night and have never noticed it. Apon watching it, I realized it was moving extraordinarily slow with the help of the trees as a reference. It was not moving like a plane, or at plane speed, nor did it resemble a plane..or even a satellite. I watched it for about 25 minutes and then it was just gone..not out of the line of sight, or over the horizon, but simply gone. The next day it was there again. And today it was there again. At first I believed it was simply a star, but then upon research found that several people over the past week, or so have noticed it worldwide. So far the only reports from the US have been from southern states. Most reports from Australia and other countries. There have been photos. It appears to be more of a circular ripple rather than a 3 dimensional object. There have also been infrared images of the sun with this thing showing up in them. I do not believe it is Nibiru. I'll try to find more on it, but as of now it still seems fairly new.
