12 January 2009: "Is it a satellite or just bright Venus?
"Is there an expert out there who can please clarify something!
Is it a satellite that is shining so brightly every evening above us or is it Venus as someone is suggesting.
There is a big debate going on amongst me and my friends and clarification is needed......."

27 January 2009: "I hope I 'm not the only one who has witnessed the two strange lights over Doha yesterday [26 january].
It was around 9.30 pm when I was standing in front of my house at Matar Kadeem (Old Airport). I looked up randomly and saw a bright flame in the sky. It was appearing tobe the size of a tennis ball with very bright flames like light flickering almost about 2 miles high. It was moving at a very slow pace and had it not been for the height at which it was, I would have ignored it as a balloon.
"All of us were amazed and were joined by a lot of other onlookers. All of us were guessing as to what it could be.
The light kept moving from South to North for about 10 mins.
It was moving in a straight line and than started wobbeling at its place. After about 3-4 more mins, it vanished into the clouds. This was not it. Afterabout another 5 is a imilar appeared in the South horizon and followed a similar pattern. Did anyone on Quatar Living noticed it? What could it be?
