SciFi Question of the Day: Those Aren’t Planets…

3 December 2009:In the night sky over ESO’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) observatory at Cerro Paranal, Chile

SciFi Question of the day: OMG! NASA has just revealed that those brighter than usual lights we’ve been seeing in the night sky this month are NOT actually planets as we’d originally thought! So… what are they?

Facebook Answers:

  Eylat Poliner Aliens? Spaceships? If NASA cannot get it right, who can?

  Kirstie Hall seriously???? i was told they were planets but one of them looks like 2 stars so close together they almost touching but then could just b my shoddy eyesight lol

  AmyBeth Fredricksen Actualy Kirstie, it’s just a new kind of Christmas decoration your neighbors are trying out. Sure, it LOOKS like it’s way up in the sky, but it’s really just in the neighbor’s yard.

  Kirstie Hall if the numptys hadnt moved away i would have put that response in serious contention for a true answer pahahaha

But in all seriousness…what lights?

Riki Ballantyne's profile photo  Riki Ballantyne  –  Own up, WHO has put their chrimbo lights up early? Or should I say WHO has put HIS Chrimbo Lights up early!

AmyBeth Inverness's profile photo  AmyBeth Inverness  –  +David Lee well, we thought that Venus and Jupiter finally came together in what astronomers call a planetary conjunction Tuesday.

But that Tau’ri battlecruiser explanation is much more probable.
