I don't know how you figure "All I see are some lights and it's hard to tell what it is" translates to I don't believe you in your mind. It means exactly what it says, I see lights and I heard the engine noise too but I can't identify it, though maybe I could if you were able to get better video showing more detail.

Hay no problem and if you don't believe that's your opine.

2. Do the formulation of ice crystals as videoed from ISS follow the properties of the fibonacci sequence as they do on earth? I always wondered why they would cut the live feed unless that was a hoax. Please advise

Honestly, can you imagine a giant private venture that puts satellites within line of sight to create a massive "viewing apparatus" all over the earth, similar to the GPS orbits, for us all to log onto and take a look at the earth and space from a 360 perspective all around the globe in real time.
That would be cool.

Jim you never got back to me and did not answer my question as follows:

I know exactly what Fibonacci sequence is but this is the first time I've heard it has something to do with ice crystals, do you want to explain what you're talking about?

I see what you mean, it's phrased sort of like the question "Do you still beat your wife?" where there's no suitable answer if you never beat your wife. Even answering "no" to that question gives a tacit acceptance of the false premise that you used to beat your wife.

I didn't see a question, I saw a string of implicit assumptions without any basis in verifiable fact.
I have reviewed this video (for the first time in 1997) and conclude that it shows commonplace and well-known objects near the shuttle, all of them observed on every shuttle flight. These videos show low-light television camera images of ice particles or man-made debris drifting out of Columbia’s cargo bay, and floating in the vicinity of the shuttle, likely within a few tens of feet of the orbiter...
Aside from details of specific Defense Department payloads and their deployments, astronauts have no classification regulations or rules preventing anyone from discussing anything they’ve seen or experienced on space flights. No secret non-disclosure signatures, no secret threats, no secret brainwashing – we communicate openly with the public. What we get, you get. What we see that’s unusual, we tell you about...
It is regrettable that so many spaceflight-minded young people have their enthusiasms exploited by misinterpretations of such shuttle videos. These inaccurate theories about what the videos show – some naive, some possibly deliberately misleading – waste a great deal of productive energy. Insisting that astronauts have seen alien vehicles is incorrect: a deliberate falsehood.

Here's a link to the cost of a Satellite and cost to launch. He could even go for the spy grade option.
That's what I'm trying to do, deny ignorance.

Ice Crystals and Snowflakes
A generalization of the Fibonacci word fractal and the Fibonacci snowflake
originally posted by: Arbitrageur
There is a vague resemblance between the mathematical "snowflake" and a real snowflake which is probably why it's called that, but it's not about real snowflakes, or ice, as you seem to suggest.
“Is it true that no two snowflakes are alike?” This question comes from the host’s teenage daughter. It is true. Imagine, he says, the complexity of a snowflake (and enthusiasm italicizes his word “complexity”). Every snowflake has a basic six-sided structure, but its spiraling descent through the air sculpts each hexagon in a unique way: the minutest variations in air temperature or moisture can — and do — make all the difference. Like mathematicians who categorize every whole number into prime numbers or Fibonacci numbers or triangle numbers or square numbers (and so on) according to its properties, so researchers subdivide snowflakes into various groupings according to type.
But when you put liquid water in space — where it can no longer remain as a liquid — which one of these two things happens? Does it freeze or boil? The surprising answer is it does both: first it boils and then it freezes! We know this because this is what used to happen when astronauts felt the call of nature while in space. According to the astronauts who’ve seen it for themselves: When the astronauts take a leak while on a mission and expel the result into space, it boils violently. The vapor then passes immediately into the solid state (a process known as desublimation), and you end up with a cloud of very fine crystals of frozen urine.

THE NOBEL PRIZE IN CHEMISTRY 2011
The mathematical constant τ is described by a sequence of numbers that the 13th-century Italian mathematician Fibonacci worked out from a hypothetical experiment dealing with rabbit reproduction. In this well-known sequence, each number is the sum of the two preceding numbers: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, etc. If you divide one of the higher numbers in the Fibonacci sequence with the preceding number – for instance, 144/89 – you get a number that is close to the golden ratio. Both the Fibonacci sequence and the golden ratio are important to scientists when they want to use a diffraction pattern to describe quasicrystals at the atomic level. The Fibonacci sequence can also explain how the discovery awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2011 has altered chemists’ conception of regularity in crystals.
