I keep coming across these dazzling star in the eastern sky.
I thought it was the same star each night, and it was, but I've also found other stars that do it if you look for it.
They almost seem like strobe lights alternating between red and blue but at such a fast rate you can't spot the colors except when you blink or look quickly away.
I am proud to say I've found the stars names thanks to some careful observations on location, and Stellarium.
The first star I saw to do it was Betelgeuse, and the most brilliant one doing it at this moment is Sirius.
I know the atmosphere makes stars appear to twinkle, but this is almost something different.
Please, I want to learn about it.
