In your opinion, are they zooming in, or is the ISS moving closer to the Earth? In the 2nd vid.

I did. I followed up with more searching too.
However if you want to gather the information to make a point, do it yourself.
You posted, you act like you know what you are talking about.
Since I can't find the info I am asking your opinion.
Well it would matter since this is not possible if they are in a orbit.
ISS moves closer to home: Space station lowers its orbit to make the commute from Earth to space shorter
Guess you need to do some better research as the ISS did move closer to Earth by 1.6 miles in January of 2015.
At 0:56 you can clearly see one of the solar panel arrays come into view(pan) from the upper right corner. And continues to pan right till the end of the video. It may have been slowly panning the whole shot, it's just not so obvious until after they reached the terminator. And zooming in.. no it doesn't look like it to me.
Yes off course it is possible to get into a lower orbit. It is not something that is done on a whim while they were filming this video. Jeez.

You believe this crap? to me it says the more tax NASA takes in the more they can waste it on computer graphics
Never said it was done for the video...you just asked if they were moving closer and yes they did.
Sigh, and I never said that you said it was done for this video. I was asking if they are zooming in,in this vid. The other option would be that the ISS was getting closer to Earth, in this vid, which is not possible, or only if this vid was shot during that change in orbit, which it wasn't.
