Venus Commonly Mistaken for UFO

If you’re looking up in the sky and you see a spherical object hanging in the night, could it be a UFO?

According to, it’s actually Venus.

Apparently, at this time of year, Venus can be highly visible with the naked eye and it’s often mistaken and reported as a UFO in the skies. It’s not uncommon that so many people may see it as a UFO since it’s the third brightest object in the sky.

    This morning at about 4:30am PST I was standing outside my home and saw a bright light in the Eastern sky. At first I thought it might be a plane flying toward me since I am near to an airport. As I stood and watched it did not seem to be moving like an airplane would. After about an hour and a half the light remained roughly in the same area. Is it possible that this was just Venus or was this something else. I am not quite sure as the news stations in my area have not reported anything about possibly seeing a planet in the nighttime sky.

    I Live in Australia and I think i saw Venus. It was late October and we were travelling from the city to the country. It was just getting dark and we saw a huge yellowy orange ball and looked like it was setting. It wasn’t the moon because the moon sets in the west not the south. And the sun had already set.
