Have you ever saw one of those sports transmissions where they have a camera fixed to a car or a motorcycle?
If you did, did you ever saw the car or the motorcycle move relative to the camera?
We do not see that because of the same reason we do not see the tip of our nose move when we move the head, our nose and our eyes have their relative
positions fixed to the same base, and that is what happens with fixed cameras, the object to which they are fixed does not have any apparent movement,
even if it is going at high speed and high G manoeuvres.
If you see the video of the Chinese astronauts at high speed you will see that the solar panels shake, they are not as fixed to the ship as the
camera, so we see them move.
PS: I know that bubbles are not perfect spheres, but they are not rotating parallelepipeds (or almost) either.
After re-reading your post I think that I may have misunderstood what you meant. If you were talking about the movement of the ship relative to the
Earth then it does not move from its orbit (that is the idea of orbiting), but we see an apparent Earth rotation.
