This footage was just posted to Youtube today; whatever he's captured here, it's damned interesting footage. Hard to get a bead on perspective, could be more moon-based, could be LEO. Ignore the hokey cartoon on the title page of the YT video, that's not it... lol.

I believe the Chinese just completed a successful return mission to the moon. That could be what this is, although it's sort of impossible to confirm without a date or time for when the footage was shot. Source youtube account seems dubious at best, what with asking for money and such.

China completes moon mission

Damn this is neat. What a good shot.

Hmmm, the return of the Chinese ship was Halloween night, this guy says his video was taken November 2, 2014 at 4:55 PM, but good point...

Chinese Moon Launch Return



The 31-pound (14 kilograms) 4M payload and the rocket stage were expected to end up circling Earth rather than re-enter the planet's atmosphere.
-- could this be it?

Dang, why is it so HARD to get simple stuff like a referenceable time hack?

This is very clearly shock heating from something re-entering earth's atmosphere. It could be any number of things.

Aren`t there satellites of different nations circling the moon right now ?

Yes it seems :



Looking outwards from our own orbit, at any time there are a handful of satellites orbiting the Moon. Right now, NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter and Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer are in lunar orbit

Do satellites orbiting the moon look like they're lighting up engines or thrusters of some kind and then going out of orbit into space? And how big would they look silhouetted against the moon?

They would not be visible even with the largest telescope on the planet.

However, if the sunlight caught it just right, you might see a glint. But no silhouette, no detail.

Well, how do we know the object in question is actually orbiting the moon and not the earth, and passing in front of the camera?

My guess is the X37B our newest space plane.
It has 3 thrusters on it and there's more than 1 of them out there.

No thrusters.

Brilliant footage. Deffo UFO, thanks OP

Interesting find... Well it's not a bird, it's not a plane, I doubt it's something re entering earth atmosphere as it would glow in a more consistent manner similar to a rocket re entry and this clearly is not that..

Since a lot is totally unknown about this clip, I'll stick to a single aspect of the video. Given that the object moves so fast across the face of the Moon, we can assume that it is rather close to Earth and not near the Moon.

It is convenient to speculate that the three points of light are rocket exhausts. At times we can discern three points of light in a triangle formation. That information is telling. A rocket in retro fire as it comes down out of or into orbit from further out in space would more than likely not have three engines. Nor would we expect a returning probe or satellite to be of such a size that a considerable distance would separate the engines so much that they could be individually discerned. Rocket engines are clustered at a far distance they would appear as a solitary source of light. These are not. As rocket exhausts, it must have been a monstrous lifter to get this body into space if it is a conventional vehicle. We must assume, therefore, that it is something unconventional.

The wide spacing of the lights--not exactly from rocket exhausts--are in keeping with the wide spacings of the three bright lights often noted on the underside of the mysterious black triangles. That allows us to further speculate that what was recorded was a triangles coming back to Earth (perhaps from the Moon) with an incredible velocity to be throttled back and we are seeing the typical three bright lights (that evidently power such craft) as it slows its motion.

Looks like space junk till you get closer to it.
Some of the kids on this forum don't know Hindu.
Maybe it's a depiction of alien first Thanksgiving?

The same as all of us at the moment I imagine, a UFO.

Interesting, but I feel as though this is something done by humans.. Some sort of space mission?

Don't speak for the rest of us.

It might be a "UFO" in the sense that it is presently not identified, but there is nothing about the footage that leads one to believe it's an alien space craft.

I have to agree with Jim Oberg here, why is it so hard to find good time stamps with footage like this? We're supposed to believe the youtube channel that is looking for money? How about no.
