I'm asking, since it's night here, on the 21th of Jan. And in the dark night sky above southeastern europe i can see a lone, flickering "Star" (cause star's don't tend to do that, IMO) or something that changes colours a bit. A bit to the north or north-eastern-ish part of the sky...

Never seen something quite like this. Tought i would ask if anyone ekse sees it, and if he does, does he knows what is it?

It's probably Sirius which is one of the more prominent stars in our skies. The scintillation (twinkling, colour changing) comes from light refraction in our atmosphere.

Well i tought  on the night sky, if you look at them for a short period of time, they tend to stand in their places. I'm well aware Earth, and the Sol system too, travel trough space at a hefty amounts of speed, but, yeah
This one moved slowly  a bit to the left while i was looking at it.

I'm pretty sure it's the star called the "Lemming" star. Theres one on each map, and Lemmings (wich are weak minded people an get hypnotized by it) start to follow it.
Only people trained in the art of WoT can build up a mind capable of resisting it, along with the endless flow of siema's flying around. Thoose people are known as "the guys with a good win ratio"
