Dont shoot me plz...


Was at the window, north/west Edinburgh, Scotland
Seen this object VERY high in the sky, this was taken on my Fujifilm S1000 camera zoomed in as far as I could.

There was no trails coming from behind it, and it was going that fast I could only get 1 picture.


Cropped :




Full Size:




Anyone?
cant remember the time of day, but it was 2/3 days ago.
it was coming at me, as in over my head. south to north, then over my house, that direction. maybe very slightly off straight at me, but near enough

Hmm, how interesting!

In my own opinion, it looks to be a satellite!

I would use this link to see if any are visible in your area: www.spaceweather.com...

Good luck with your research and keep us posted!

Kind regards

wouldn't that be a little low for a satellite? Cool pic for sure. Can't wait to hear what the other posters have to say. I bet Kite will be one explanation, but that's not mine!

Maybe a remote controled plane, not a real one, like the small ones you can by as a hobby, maybe a kite, or maybe something far more complex!





Edit to add: interesting for sure though! S&F

impossible !!

it was WAY to high. and I mean WAY to high, i could barely see it, caught my eye, ran for the camera, it was almost coming over my house by the time I took the picture.

hmm
why didnt I go to the front of the house for more pictures


Space station ?
does that go round the earth south to north ?, or pole to pole ?

Aaah, it does look much more like a plane or a kite! Was the object moving when you took the photo?

yes, over my head, VERY VERY high, going south to north.
I add the south to north, as perhaps it might be a satelite

Is it not one of those unmanned aircraft just recently "released"?

Not sure what it was and it is too late so I won't bother right now to look for it.

I saw one of those things too...last summer. it was in broad daylight and it was moving very fast.

I think it was a satellite or ISS. but I don't know if those are "naked eye" objects.

maybe you can describe what you saw without your camera?

OP: Can you tell us why the EXIF data shows it went thru Photoshop many days after the photo was taken?

ok, no problems.
was like a white dot in the sky with the naked eye, moving fast.
Knew right away it wasnt a plane as there was nothing coming from behind it,
time i got my camera, farted about trying to find it in the sky at full zoom it had passed over me with me only managing to get 1 picture.

I have seen several. Last time was yesterday afternoon. Broad daylight. I am thinking Satellite but I am not sure if you can see them during the day.

cool
...I saw fast white dot too.

so can anybody tell us if the ISS is a naked eye object?

I think a satellite would be too small to see it without any equipment.

from appearances, it looks kind of like a hang-glider, in its shape.

but to be coming from so high all the way to coming over your house, and, even with farting around, you only got time for one picture, it was surely descending far too rapidly to be anything that depends on wind currents for life and travel - like a kite or hang-glider.

those little streaky-things are intriguing.

and i'm just guessing (so anyone, feel free to correct me!), but wouldn't there be some degree of heat building up around a satellite falling to the earth?
i know they travel in near earth orbit but wouldn't the friction of the atmosphere still cause great friction, and subsequently heat, in the descent?

blown up, though, it does remind me of a solar panel used by Nasa or equivalent.

puzzling, to be sure.


was there any noise associated with it?

Thank you for sharing these interesting pictures


I don't recall ever seeing anything like this before.

The previous poster said it looks like a glider, this was my first thought also.

I am also wondering if this could be a new type of weather monitoring device, like a high altitude kite or glider?
