You said: "Rick Ray, if that's who runs the website you posted, doesn't claim any copyright."
You are wrong my friend or maybe went to another webpage. Here, the copyright statement
for the footage by Rick Ray. As I understand royalties go to him, what about NASA?
See the contact info? Rick Ray.
Note the Public Domain status, and the license fee.
Maybe NASA doesn't want their video used for advertising or promotional purposes, (I don't know, Jim Oberg do you know anything about that?). But he's obviously saying it's a public domain video, right? And it clearly shows the licensing fee is zero, right?

I'm pretty sure it's not animation. Are you assuming they only have one camera, or that they can't move the camera around to photograph from different locations and in different directions? Are those valid assumptions?

I checked other videos of the same STS-134 undocking and all of them show
the same circle at center so what is going to be: Animation or not?
If I'm reading this mission timeline right, looks like on day 15, STS-134 had 43 minutes scheduled for a fly-around of the ISS, from 15:27-16:10. That's enough time to shoot the actual footage we see, from different angles, right?
Here's the actual video shot during that 43 minutes, time lapsed down to 3m38s (the lake appears at 0:52), and it's less confusing than the video you posted earlier as it doesn't have the splice:
[STS-134] Flyaround of International Space Station in HD (Timelapse)
Laser emission in the wavelength region 14–18 μm has been observed in optically-pumped 15NH3 using the P26 line of a pulsed HF laser. Pressure and temperature dependence, as well as various optical configurations for the cell, were investigated. Each of the stronger laser lines was observed to have a pressure-dependent structure and several of the lines are apparently related through a cascade mechanism.
You mean lake Elton? That's at about 53 seconds in that video. A lot of space UFO videos do show little bits of ice, but what this OP story calls a "UFO" happens to be a lake.

Yes, excellent work free_spirit, and great collaborative ATS work as well.
Which is why I like this place so much , people like yourself and free_spirit who are prepared to keep digging to get to the truth of a mystery.
