thanks NightVision ,
in the video you posted i do not see any indication of anything flying upward ?
all i see is something flying along pretty fast as far as i can tell, but the shaky camera would make it hard to conclude that anything is flying upward ?
not trying to debunk your statement or your observation...i just don't see exactly what your saying is all.
Also, satellite's / flares don't split off into two, then meld back into one. I think some of the objects up there might be satellites, but many of the things up there appear to be very stange, unconventional objects.
There is definitely something going on there.
The implication is that the objects seen in the videos can't be satellites since Heavens Above hasn't predicted them. This in my opinion is very misleading.
A 1999 study estimated there are some 4 million pounds of space junk in low-Earth orbit, just one part of a celestial sea of roughly 110,000 objects larger than 1 centimeter -- each big enough to damage a satellite or space-based telescope.
Space debris comprise the ever-increasing amount of inactive space hardware in orbit around the Earth as well as fragments of spacecraft that have broken up, exploded or otherwise become abandoned. About 50 percent of all trackable objects are due to in-orbit explosion events (about 200) or collision events (less than 10).
