This is getting interesting, although it remains HIGHLY SPECULATIVE.
On Sep 26 Russia launched the 14th warhead test from KapYar to Sary Shagan on a Topol ICBm -- and it was at twilight like half the previous tests and
so was widely seen.
Unlike previous tests, no launch time was included in the announcement.
However, by using witness accounts from Russia, Kazakhstan, Turkey, and Iran, I have estimated launch occurred about 15:27 UTC.
Curiously, at exactly that moment, ISS was passing over the Sary Shagan test range where the new-model evasive warheads were reentering.
The US crew was busy with EVA prep, so I don't know if anyone was in the cupola observing anything.
Are there any indications anybody on ISS saw the missile?
This is the second time one of these missiles was launched at the proper time to be observed from ISS.
Here's the accidental observation of the last such conjunction.
Ryazanskiy was also on that mission. He told me he had seen the launch from the Russian Segment, but had not been able to take any photos.
Here's a Russian news program with English subtitles that explains all the UFO reports caused by last week's launch.
