Absolutely right - these images have been around for a while. The suggestion from the video in the OP is that the ISS is the only thing we've put up
there. The answer to "what's this" is that "this" is a satellite - and quite clearly a satellite too.
The technology to see satellites (and space stations) in space has been around for years. This is not a "new way" at all - it's a slightly blurry
version of stuff we already know.
I'm not entirely against the concept that there might be hidden stuff up there - whether it be black project weaponry, secret stations, or whatever -
but I find it very hard to believe that it would not be hidden from our view. We can see these kinds of objects with a relatively basic telescope,
there's nothing secret about them.
They look kind of spookily nice, though, don't they?
