Timelapse video of Russian Progress MS-10 cargo spacecraft lifting off from Kazakhstan on Nov 16th.


On Thursday, the European Space Agency (ESA) published a video taken from the International Space Station (ISS) by astronaut Alexander Gerst. The video shows time-lapse footage of the Russian Progress MS-10 cargo spacecraft that launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on November 16. The footage is almost unbelievable as it shows the spacecraft, on a resupply mission to the ISS, arcing into orbit. The camera pans slowly and follows the unmanned Russian craft, revealing Earth’s curvature in epic scale.

Stunning.

Nice video. I like the part where the booster falls into the atmosphere and makes a bright fireball when it burns up. But there's something I don't understand about space videos like this, what is the light brown line at the upper right of this image? Some kind of ionospheric effect?



The atmosphere gradually gets thinner with increasing height, just as this says:

spaceflight.nasa.gov...

There really isn't a sharp boundary to the atmosphere, but it gets rapidly thinner the higher you go.


So wouldn't or shouldn't imagery of the atmosphere show just that? More density closer to the surface but gradually getting thinner until you can't see any atmosphere anymore? But this video almost seems to show a boundary, which isn't extremely sharp but still is more pronounced than I would expect so I'm curious to know what causes that appearance.

Airglow is caused by various processes in the upper atmosphere of Earth, such as the recombination of atoms which were photoionized by the Sun during the day, luminescence caused by cosmic rays striking the upper atmosphere, and chemiluminescence caused mainly by oxygen and nitrogen reacting with hydroxyl ions at heights of a few hundred kilometres.

Very very cool. Looks like a scene from a Star Wars film.

Look at all the stars, finally. Aren't they always missing because of brightness or something?

Only on the dayside of the Planet.

I am fairly certain that this was light reflected off swamp gas that froze into ice crystals when it was pushed skyward by a powerful updraft.

Thank-you for explaining that it wasn't a UFO.

Are we sure this is actually a real video? It looks kinda like CGI to me, especially that atmosphere, I don't recall it ever looking so prominent in other similar footage.

You are not that far off - It sort of isn't real video. Or regular video anyway.

It is a timelapse of hundreds of photos, each taken with an exposure time far greater than that of typical video, which allows for otherwise dimm objects to appear bright(er).

Also, typically you'd postprocess the photos, adjusting the temperature,tone, and saturation, before making it into video.

Thus surreal look of the atmosphere.

Really? It looks like a straight up CGI clip.
