Hmmm its to bright to tell what it is.

But i'm thinking its either light bouncing off of a satellite.

It could even be the moon.

Nice find.

Station to ground
"...no problems, we just wanted to explain our pause... we were playing with the cam and making sure we had a good uh...just making sure we had a good clearance view...with the..."

Reply from ground
"Alright Tracy, thanks for the tag up - we've been following along down here with great interest."

Sorry for the breaks, I couldn't make out some of what she was saying, but wow. Everyone on the ISS sounds shaken during this video.

*edit for clarification -
Usually it's a good indicator of a stress factor when people go from speaking with clarity to "uh...uh..." every few words.

"The cross the light is creating" is a camera sensor overload, as per the many detailed discussions on ATS to that effect.

Kind regards

Ldkwraith.....

Why couldn't that simply be the sun?

Can we exclude that?

Kind regards
Maybe...maybe not

I'd say its the Sun aswell. Nothing could be that bright without someone on the ground also seeing the same thing "chasing" the ISS.

You can see the boom-shadows being cast aswell as the reflectivity of the Sun along the edges of the ISS through its orbital transition.

Honestly i have no idea? I saw in the video description where the youtube Author said it was not the sun, but i have no clue how he comes to that conclusion. I just thought this was an interesting vid that i though some people would like to see, not trying to waste anyone's time.

I'm working on finding some examples of the sun viewed from the ISS as we speak - though to answer your question, ground did reply "...we're following with great interest." and judging from the lack of really anything else going on in the video, it was either sarcasm or a factual statement.

Am I correct in guessing that the poster neglected to give time-of-day information that could be used to generate illumination context?

As usual, proponents of the 'no earthly explanation' interpretation deliberately sabotage any possibility of a real investigator finding a prosaic explanation.

Big waste of time.

No, we can not exclude that at all. The ISS sees a lot of the sun, the astronauts aboard actually see 16 sunrises/sunsets every day!

In this great pic the sun creates the same camera sensor overload as in the video. (I like this image very much, it's great to see both the sun, the earth and also one of the ISS solar panels in one shot.
)




One of two ISS Expedition 13 astronauts currently serving aboard the station snapped this image of an orbital sunset during one of 16 orbits 213.1 statute miles (342 kilometers) above Earth. The maintain its orbit, the ISS flies at a speed of about 17,500 miles per hour (32,500 kilometers per hour).

That speed carries the ISS around a complete orbit in 90 minutes, meaning that every 45 minutes its astronaut crew catches a sunrise and sunset.

If by "poster" you mean they guy that put this on youtube, i don't believe he did. I just came across it, thought it was interesting and posted it here.

Thank you for the image, Ziggy - at least I found out why they would have been stressed out.

WHC Update: After the failure of the WHC (Waste & Hygiene Compartment) toilet facility was traced to the MNR-NS pump/separator, the crew replaced the unit with a Russian spare from FGB stowage which recovered the system. The WHC is now working nominally and Go for use. According to the near-term plan, the WHC remains configured for internal EDV-U use for waste collection. Its re-integration with the UPA (Urine Processor Assembly) will require additional investigation. [The only US spare unit on board is currently “lost” and cannot be found.]


Looks like it was just the Sun after all.

What a great pic!


I'd say the chances are it's the sun.

Kind regards

Yeah after watching it a few times i too am now starting to think it is the sun as well. Although the comments from command were a bit odd..
