I'm moving this to space exploration, that's what it's about, it's not an intentional hoax.

So it was the sunset that produced that orange light? Wow! The ISS must be traveling at a million miles per hour for the color on the solar panels to have changed so fast!!

While I may be a pilot; an astronaut I'm not.

I'm only trying to convey the information as "on the record".

Your welcome to dissect and dissuade. Have at it!

Why would an astronaut lie?

She doesn't have to, she's just as fallible as everyone else, like a pilot thinking Venus was chasing them.

I wonder what else other astronauts have misidentified over the years?

It was a special he did, not part of Top Gear.

What exactly has she misidentified? If you read through this thread, you will see that she simply saw the ISS's huge solar panels bathed in orange light of the sunset (which does happen very fast in orbit), and was awed. I know I would be.

She didn't report seeing a UFO, and the disclose.tv article title is misleading.

For the ISS, sunset happens every 90 minutes, and lasts seconds.

I did read the thread, I did skip the disclose.tv link though...I just assumed she had misidentified what she saw going by this quote:




Butch told me later that he had heard my amazement on com when "the Station had turned orange.” I didn’t know, but apparently there’s only a few seconds during day-night transition that the Station is lit by that amazing orange glow. And it happened to be exactly when I peaked outside! I feel very fortunate that I had such a unique first glimpse of our human outpost in space: such a great welcome!

Yeah, it's a bit unusual that she wasn't aware of these rapid and vivid sunsets/sunrises that astronauts experience so often. If you watch some spacewalk coverage, they often show the ISS experiencing this phenomenon.

The color of the sun's reflection (if it was) can't change that fast considering that the speed of the ISIS is around 25,000 kmph only!


Do the math.

90 minute orbit.

So sky turns 360 deg in 90 min,
or 4 deg / minute,
or 1 deg in 15 sec.

The sun's angular diameter is half a degree.

So it goes from zero to full brightness in 8 seconds, smeared out a little by atmosphere.

Seems quick to me.

Let's say for the sake of argument that she really did see a ufo, would she be at liberty to tell the whole world of her alien encounter, or would she more likely give the sweep under the rug cover story? Not sure about non disclosures while up in space, but it seems that an astronaut would be well trained and informed on those kind of phenomena. Her reaction betrays her official account, color me skeptical.

Not quite that quick but damned fast all the same:



Average speed 7.67 kilometres per second (27,600 km/h; 17,200 mph)
Orbital period 92.81 minutes

She sure sounds like she is enjoying the moment in a big way!!

She's Italian, she's allowed to be dramatic.
