Please take a close look at this video I got last night. It may just be vapors off the planet... But when there was a clear view of the star it had some kind of rings on the star that moved. It was flickering red, white, blue & actually disappeared at certain times. Please look and help me figure what it is... My star walk on my iPad says it is sirus. Which was the brightest star in the south about 30 to 40 degrees... I posted the video publicly to YouTube. Look´╗┐ toward the end of the video where I spot two circles on the planet. YouTube Video of Sirius

Ok, yes you are seeing a combo of Earths atmospheric effects and the acual light being focused thru wind blown tree branches, maybe a Willow tree, but basicly when you focus on the tree you are seeing a scatering effect simalar to a refraction grid, This would also cause a seperation of colors, but when its mostly blocked by the tree you arnt in focus and the light dims and resolves as round, the round spot on the object is a lens artifact, also most the time since Venus is an inner planet you will only see it as a cresent shape like the moon rarly round unless its behind the Sun from your perspective. Keep in mind Venus has an atmoshere, you can't see its surface because its covered in clouds and the reason it's so bright. If it was the star Sirius then yes it will always look round and brighter on the horizon, and if the sky is super clear it could be as bright as Venus. Im going to say it was Venus not Sirius since it was extreemly bright and on the horizon. :}

Well generally the accepted difference between planets and stars is that planets tend to exhibit a constant steady light that moves in orbit or revolve counterclockwise around the sun and rotate counterclockwise on their own axis, the exception in planets appears to be mercury which rotates clockwise on its axis and whose day is longer than its year....

as far as stars they tend to twinkle due to the obstructions to their light in the long distance that they must travel to reach the earth.... Sirius is a bit of an exception and an extremely bright and constant star somewhat light Polaris. the north star.... so ... its hard to say.... you could contact NASA or some others to check if they observed anything unusual. Sirius was the star the Egyptians noted appeared every year around flooding time of the Nile... 3000 years ago which led to their the Egyptians creation of the calendar.

I have another video that I will post of Venus. And it looks a lit different than Sirius. Venus has a huge crater on its south pole that is visible while still light.

All in all... Very interesting!
Thank you for you responds bushman & swanny,
It's been a while since I been here. But I knew exactly where to as for help!

Your wellcome :} But you can't see any of the surface of Venus, not even with a telescope, it's covered with a thick layer of clouds. I think your camera needs cleaning or you have a lens artifact.
Heres a link.
