Seriously, the purple hue of the object's shadow would indicate that the sun can pass through it...resulting in the softer violet hue. This would indicate that it is probably not a solid object, but gaseous or vaporous in nature.

I would love to have this proven wrong, as nothing would thrill me more than that this was a huge solid metallic object of extraterrestrial origin.

How high can a high altitude balloon rise? The ISS is 250 Miles high. If you can demonstrate a balloon can get that high enough so we can see its diameter not as a dot but a thumb size then ill support the balloon argument.



It's not possible, he is a troll.

I have been a member here for a number of years, and I have heard a number of claims that the UFO forum is controlled, I've even defended this forum. Until know, I've not believed that it is, but I seriously believe that it is. Unbelievable ATS, unbelievable.

Looks kinda like the business end of an ICBM. The good ol' 1 megaton Titans.

I'm a troll because I'm offering possible explanations? What happened to "deny ignorance"?

I'd LOVE for this to be a legitimate UFO but we have a responsibility to eliminate all other explanations first.

My initial thought was it could be the tip of an approaching Space-X capsule but there was a resupply that docked with the ISS on January 12th and it won't be detached until February 10th.

Here's a close up giff I found , it does look kinda fluffy.


I think you're probably right EA.


Disappointed it's not a space Bonbon though

You know all these Ufos people have been seeing for years its going to turn out they were really frozen ammonia clouds falling from space lmao.

So does the ISS solar panel sticking out next to it in picture. I guess the point your trying to make its a cloud. Please find some historical ISS feed which shows a cloud like this so we can compare, as until some one does its not a cloud.

Yet you have not provided one credible bit of evidence to usurp this, apart from asking why there is a shadow. Deny ignorance? It's the sun that provides the shadow.

You apparently confuse me with another poster because I have not once asked why there is a shadow.

Before you call someone a troll, you should get your facts straight. I've offered several possible explanations as objects for discussion to eliminate all possibilities before settling on "UFO"... like a rational person does. You've attacked every post that has attempted to offer a non-UFO explanation with mockery or "show proof that it's not a UFO." You have it backwards...

I seriously doubt that is possible and it's after midnight here so ...No.

It's a matter of perspective Athlon , whilst it may appear to be close to the panel it isn't necessarily as it appears , plus as EA said it is in perfect sync with the Earth meaning it's likely in the atmosphere and so likely a cloud.

It was interesting though.

An immense cloud forms outside the atmosphere after the disintegration pic.twitter.com/PshgE1W7CJ — Luca Parmitano (@astro_luca) October 11, 2013

NASA astronaut Mike Hopkins, who is also working on the station, also tweeted his view of the cloud, saying, “Saw something launch into space today. Not sure what it was but the cloud it left behind was pretty amazing.”Seeing an unannounced rocket launch out of the window would have likely been pretty unnerving for the crew. So what was that ULO (Unidentified Launching Object)?

After doing some digging, Nancy Atkinson over at Universe Today found the answer, courtesy of the Russian Forces blog:

The Strategic Rocket Forces carried out a successful test launch of a Topol/SS-25 missile on October 10, 2013. The missile was launched at 17:39 MSK (13:39 UTC) from Kapustin Yar to the Sary Shagan test site in Kazakhstan.

Your assuming the thing is a stationary object.

Yes, but stationary relatively to the ground.

Someone already pointed out it has a sharp rim like edge. What I also notice is that it has symmetry unlike the clouds which have uneven layers on the edges.

The river has 'sharp rim like edges' as well, and at least as sharp as these of the 'UFO'.

About the symmetry, I would say that it only seems to has symmetry. The poor resolution plus the compression effects of the YT video do not allow to correctly evaluate this symmetry as the small variations in the cloud shape are completely diluted in the adjacent pixels, then invisible. The symmetry could exist, but this can not be an argument against the cloud hypothesis.

If you take for example a cumulonimbus cloud like this one:



As seen from above at the best possible resolution, it will of course likely have a general round shape, but there still will be details visibles at its periphery.
As seen from above at a poor resolution, all these small details will not be anymore visible, only the round general shape will be, thus the symmetric shape.

Where the hell is that camera? Is it tethered by a cable or what?



nah....it's just floating perfectly still a couple of hundred feet away from the station taking endless amounts of pictures!!!....sorry, I'm being sarcastic, because I too want to know where these damn cameras are and who is operating them?....why doesn't anyone ask that when talking to NASA?

It's a space cloud ?

They evacuated because of a harmless cloud.

It looks like more than a stray cloud to me.

What im finding interesting about this is, if this is a cloud at whatever altitude, what is that dark straight line down the right hand side of it?
Its visible in the centre of the purple part of the "cloud"

Anyone?

It is difficult to get a measure of where it is in relation to the ISS, it could be very close and yet it could be far away.

It can't be close, as I explained above. It moves in relation to the ground... Take a second look at the video.
I don't think it's movement in relation to the Earth's rotation is proof of anything. Why do you feel it is?

Oooh this is a good'n !
I'm gonna sit back and hear from an expert or two as to
" what I'm really seeing" .

Right now I'm seeing an analmonous object of
rather large size that I think we agree wasn't feet from the ISS.
(a ballon can't get that high and terrestrial spacecraft as well as sizeable junk
should be known and on the no go by list)

Others will be saying that I'm sure I'll saw different...

Oh and if someone tells me that's a 30+ (+++)
foot across hunk of frozen ammonia from the leak...
I'll add it to my, they aren't even trying anymore, pile.


Don't worry we have enough non experts explaining away. 😉

Basically what your saying is that since its moving in relatively with earths motion it must be a cloud while not wanting to make any attempt/effort at all to produce photographic evidence of clouds that look like this (no not the previously linked photo of clouds), I mean ones that look like this, from this overhead view from space.

If your trying to tell me this is photographic evidence is not available then it just are affirms to me why I hold in regard the debunker skeptics in the same light as Ufo nuts as when you challenge either to show the data they cant, but they each will use that " most likely" argument in their responses because it suits their paradigm.

That's it im through with this thread, I have heard everthing I need to know that the conspiracy nuts are alive and well.
