Satellites is the most likely explanation imo.

For comparison check out this video ...

Gorgeous moonset into #aurora. How many satellites can you spot streaking across the stars? I count 8, 3 at 1 time!

Neat. How much faster than real time?

Hi Jim : )

Without the image & video-rendering information, determining specifics would be difficult.

If I had to guess, I'd say 4x or 5x.

Would you agree ?

I asked this about the original video how much has it been speeded up I would love to see it in real time.

I see more things then just those two flying around. Totally awesome and beautiful.

I think normal ISS orbit is around 90 minutes and I didn't try to calculate exactly but I think one orbit in the OP video would take less than one minute so my guess is the OP video has been sped up by over a factor of 100.

I would guess that the OP video shows satellites in polar orbits, which would also explain why two of them looked almost parallel. They seem to be crossing the path of the ISS though maybe at a slightly higher altitude which would be typical for polar orbiting satellites with an orbital period of maybe 100 minutes, though it's really hard to determine 3-D perspective from such objects and actual altitude.

I can't see the twitter video, all I see on the twitter link is a bunch of tweets.

We have to rule out all other possibilities before we are left with unknown(s). Glass screens in front of the camera, movement of the camera relative to the background, and NASA (Never A Straight Answer) all make this more difficult.

Dd you get the faster than a bullet thing?


I'm sorry, but I don't think I understand what you mean by the bullet thing.

What is the grey pancake-shaped object that flies well beneath the space station, coming toward the camera (i.e., in the opposite direction the ISS is moving, and exits out of the screen near the lower left at about 1:08?

Well this is obviously the answer...So NASA wants reflection in their shot so they install a camera with a blinking light? I don't even understand what lights everyone thinks will be blinking and what type of glass window would reflect them? It clearly looked off in the distance to me. I was hoping this might be a smoking gun of ET ufo's.

It does to me too, and I'm already kind of camera- technically- challenged so I can't understand why it's supposed to be a reflection...or why there would be a light blinking. And, this might sound really stupid, but if they're filming these things through glass, which they'd obviously have to be doing if the camera is inside, would they not have some kind of technology that would correct for things like that?

This object becomes visible just over the horizon at about 1:02 and is visible for six seconds. Any ideas what it is?

I am trying really hard to see what you're talking about...I don't see anything grey at all. The only things I see coming over the horizon are bright lights, and nothing flat. Can you describe it better? It's not lit up?

Best way to see it is probably to go to 1:07 and click to stop it, then put it in full screen (since you don't usually want to be in there given eye problem you mentioned) and look in the lower left area of the screen. If you want to watch it move from the horizon to that point, maybe track back to 1:02 and stay focused on only the left side of the screen. It's quite an interesting object. I've frozen it several times in order to get a better look at it; in the last second or two it seems to have several lights in the front.

I think I see what you mean. To my eyes, it is lit the entire time, with white and yellow lights that appear to be almost lighting it from the inside...a soft, blurry glow...and then as it travels to the bottom of the screen, it grows brighter at the front half of it. It is shaped like a kite almost, and flat, and appears to be traveling at a bit of a slant, but looks like it levels out a few seconds before it disappears from view. It also looks like it has some vapor-ish stuff coming from the tail end of it and underneath the side edges, right before the front of it gets brighter. Does that sound like your pancake?

Great!!! You see it, and in much more detail than I do. You have incredibly unique eyesight. I wish I could see this the way you do. I see it moving very fast, being round/oval and pancake-like, a grey color, with lights at the front as it gets closer and I see just a hint of light farther back. I'd love to be able to see the luminosity you see, the glow, and the yellow lights, as well as the vapor coming off it. I hope someone here at ATS will be able to produce an enlargement of the object just before it flies out of the screen. Thanks for looking at it, tigertatzen.

Go shoot a gun and try to see the bullet. You can't. In space things are whizzing around 5 times faster than bullets, relative to each other. All of this is moot anyway, because we can't rule out the possibility of reflection or flare in or off the lens or window.

Sorry but that argument falls apart. Mars moves up to 10 times the speed of a bullet and we can see that. The ISS moves overhead 5 times faster than bullets and we can see that. So do iridium satellites and they are extremely bright at times. There are many other factors involved besides speed, like the size of the object, how much sunlight the object reflects, and the relative directions of the trajectories.

I don't think they are reflections or flare, though I'm not 100% certain of that, neither the appearance nor behavior of the objects in the OP video is consistent with reflections I'm familiar with, but at least the motion does seem to be consistent with polar orbiting satellites. If they are satellites, I must admit it's surprising they are visible but I suspect the sun could be hitting them just right, maybe not totally unlike an Iridium flare though it can't be exactly like that since the first one seems visible for a wider field of view. It is an interesting puzzle and I can't say with any certainty they are satellites but I'm certainly not going to rule out satellites based on the bullet analogy. If I had to guess, polar orbiting satellites would be my best guess.

Thanks for agreeing with me.

If its not reflection.

Did you see all the other momentary blips in the video? Go full screen and watch the sky unblinkingly…

I like the formation movement of the two
whatever they are. Soon,the people who have
the uncanny ability of knowing absolutely everything will say:
"It's the Iridium satellite constellations"
Then pull up orbital numbers that won't correspond
but this doesn't matter because they can't be
unknowns. Since a few satellites do orbit in formation
and unknowns are not NASA approved, these are obviously
satellites.
ugh I was 30 seconds too late..
NASA sure puts their goods in the vicinity of what should be catalogued
space debris.... often.


I gather you're referring to the two fast-moving objects in the upper lefthand region of the sky, which I still haven't been able to see. I'm wondering about the identity of the several brilliant lights that move up in the vicinity of the ISS, the brightest of which rises just over the station's outside apparatus at 1:08 in the video. I'm stopped the video at that point to see the closest available image of the object (perhaps an island) in the lower left corner of the screen, just before it passes beyond the camera's range. If you stop the video at 1:08 you will see that bright dazzling light poised just over the upper arm of the visible exterior of the ISS. Can it be accounted for as a satellite? Are there any other images of satellites captured this close to the ISS and do they exude such brilliant light? If so, as you said above, "NASA sure puts their goods in the vicinity of what should be catalogued . . ." and avoided.
