Night sky


Recommended Posts

It is Jupiter. I checked using SkySafari which is a smartphone app, inputted Rochester NH and had a look at was is in the sky roughly in the direction/elevation you stated.

I’m not sure what you mean by moving erratically though. Do you mean twinkling? The atmosphere is always moving due to air currents, heat rising etc and this will distort your view slightly.

The movement is very erratic. From my perspective it appears to move at least a few inches one way then several inches another way etc but always basically centered around the same spot in the sky. This is happening when all other visible stars are stationary.  Thank you for trying to help me out.
