Cities are generally larger and more irregular shaped.
I think it really is a fleet
[wait for it]
fishing boats using xenon lamps to attract prey.
Same as the astronaut Chiao report on NASA's Unexplained Files.
[same as the lights off Kaikoura in New Zealand years ago -- that bogus 'UFO flap' still unsolved officially]
Dang it Jim, you beat me to it. Yes, fishing boats. At exactly that time in the video, ISS was right over an area known to have large fleets of
fishing boats operating at night forming groupings of lights just like that.
For the forum, they're "emerging" from behind one of the station's modules, which you can't see because it's in complete darkness. Earlier in the
feed you can see where the camera's pointed, the module fills up more than half the view. I think that's Columbus (Jim you'd know better than me
which module that is).
You can also see that the camera is pointed towards earth, and that the "lights" are moving at the same rate that the station is orbiting earth.
Therefore the most logical conclusion is that those lights are on earth. Using the time of the feed to look up where ISS was at that time based on the
...bingo, right over the Falkland Islands. Fishing boats creating groupings of lights like this are known to operate near the Falkland islands at
"Nighttime photo of the Falkland Islands and southern South America taken by the Suomi NPP satellite. The lights in the Atlantic are from fishing
boats. The GOCE satellite crashed into the ocean Sunday evening."
The boats in the GOCE image look like they're islands themselves, but they're actually just groupings of individual fishing boats. And that's exactly
where ISS was in this video.
