...You only see the beam from a laser if there's a lot of crap in the air that's scattering it, and a tiny tiny amount from the air itself scattering the beam. You have to have one hellacious beam density to barely see the beam from even a short distance. Any photo/video/movie that shows a solid beam, or what looks like a moving pulse of light, is by default something else than a light beam or an intentional hoax.
In space it's worse, because there ARE no aerosols or gases to scatter the beam.

You know what, I knew it was a time lapse... I don't know what the H I was thinking. I guess I saw the 'event' and forgot about the time lapse.
So what we are seeing are not shooting stars, right? Must be airplanes, as the 2 of them seem to be on the same route. That probably contributed to my lapse (hehe) of judgment, they look so much like shooting stars and shooting stars don't appear in a time lapse - at least not for more than a single frame... and I imagine that would be very rare.
It's hard to tell trajectories, but the 'would be laser blast', certainly looks to be heading into orbit. I wonder if it could be a shuttle launch, maybe sending a satellite up?edit on 26-3-2014 by esteay812 because: (no reason given)
...It's a beautiful video, but I was reminded of another video I've seen before - you've likely seen it as well. It shows what some claim to be an energy weapon (laser type) being fired at a UFO, which promptly reverses course and accelerates. You can easily see why some have speculated this to be the case, but there has been no evidence to confirm the theory. I do not know of any other similar events that have been caught on camera.
Here is that video:
