Something I've always wondered about, I hope someone can answer...NASA always claims debris or space junk when something odd is on camera, what I'm wondering is why doesn't said debris disappear in the blink of an eye considering how fast the ISS travels? How do these things (especially objects that are far from the ISS) stay on camera for several minutes at a time?

The object is going the same speed as the ISS since it came off the ISS. There is no air in space to drag it to a slower speed immediately. Nvm why the heck am I even explaining this I gotta get out of this thread its almost laughable.

Very interesting -- I wonder if ROC may be involved...

We've seen the video of a stealth camouflaged soldier climbing on the tank -- makes me think of that video when watching that amorphous "thing" on the ISS: (skip to the 2:55 mark for the stealth camo soldier)

(and the music is sweet, feel free to crank it up!)

If, for a moment, we were to assume that "someone" has a stealth/cloaking space suit -- what are the implications? I would like to think it is one of our guys, but...

all you people saying it CAN'T be a washer, based on the size or whether or not its spinning, stop and think for a second, this doesn't appear to be a high def camera and the light reflecting from it could get distorted on the film. This would make determining the size and movements of it difficult. It's fairly obvious that its a washer, c'mon now.

Isn't it just one of those humanoid robots made specifically for assisting astronauts in space?

Folks....let's look at some other examples of loose equipment floating, a compilation of different events....(I'm guessing these are all from the same EVA it was over 6 hours in length, total. SO, they would be day/night/day/night throughout, as they orbited).

First one occurs in the day-lit side on orbit, so much clearer resolution with these cameras (you will note, two different POV from two different cameras).

@1:00, the object, while not a washer (more complex shape) DOES have a roundish component to it. As it floats, it is not yet in direct sunlight.....just as in the OP video, it is illuminated by reflected light. This case, it's brighter, because the Station is illuminated more, being on the day side.

@1:09, it drifts out of the shadow of the structure, and into daylight, brightening even more.

NOW!! @2:10, a clip from the OP's video, little bit better quality...shorter, just focused on the washer. It is a fluke, in that why it's getting this attention here on ATS....the washer presents itself directly face on, by pure chance....and seems to be rotating on what seem to be complex combinations of multiple that we have a better, sharper image to compare. It is pure chance that its face is straight on, at the camera, during certain points in its revolution. In irregular patterns. There is enough ambient light to make it glint, and be seen, each time its angled just right. (**Note...each time the camera catches it, the CCD pixels don't "fade out" immediately, but there's a short after-image left why it looks so odd. I posted links, several pages back, to websites that discuss this characterisitic of video cameras).....

@2:31, more small rotating objects....some go flying by...all seem to be unrelated.

@3:17??? Does he toss that diaper bag on purpose??? Only the Russians know for sure!!

(Maybe he saw an "alien", and threw the bag at it!!)

They ejected their Justin Bieber CD.

If there are aliens out there, why would they be crawling around the space station? Come on, really...and next they will probably start pooping meteors on to us down here and strange diseases will apear!!

Take it and run! These guys below probably started this idea!

Thanks.....(I think)....even though that video is technically off DOES, however, illustrate something I've said earlier about video camera frame rates, as they record.

Since the dolts used their camera to film off of their CRT screen....they get the synchronization effects and problems.....

What is all those streaks of tiny particles and lights zipping everywhere also.

Those were the other Justin Bieber CDs that were shredded,then tossed overboard!! particles....some sort of normal Station activity. (Like...a urine dump?) [**]

idk, depends on the layout of the thing, where the camera was pointing, where the lavatories are, etc. Will need more research.....guess you could call this next investigation "potty training"??

[**] Although, my understanding is they recycle fluids as much as possible. Yes, even urine...gets cleaned, filtered, treated and instead of being used as potable water, is diverted for washing and stuff....but, I'd expect that re-supply missions would include some FRESH water every now and then....wold hope so, anyways!! So, the old re-used stuff could be dumped eventually.....

Definetly Space is awesome, crowded with sombre figures and star-jellyfish or not, it's gorgeous and fabulous.

Who knows???

Something with a definite delta-v, compared to the ISS....relatively looks close, and small.....those Russians seemed to be quite the litterbugs, eh??

Seriously, not to pile on them....everyone loses stuff on EVA, I'd think...once it floats out of reach, and you're tethered....well, there's no going after it. Too much effort, too dangerous, too technically infeasible and waste of time. ("Infeasible" unless the Astronaut/Cosmonaut is wearing an MMU...and, they don't do that often).

I believe that John Glenns "fireflies" were explained to be ice crystals that had formed over the capsule while it was on the night side of earth. When he emerged into the sunlight again the crystals started flaking off the capsule and reflected the sunlight as they flew away into space. Recall that he saw them just as he came around to the light side of earth and they were gone in a matter of minutes.

ya know, i really wanna say those "humanoids" look like actual men in space suits, but then at times, they look nothing like a space suit. and the whole washer catching sunlight theory, i dont buy. because if it were moving in such a way to catch sunlight, it would turn and be an oval shape when the sun hits it and a circle again when its dark. this object never changes shape at all and that is obvious in the slow-mo zoom. great find op.

Yeah what the heck... NASA is a cosmic litterbug that needs to be stopped
If I was an Alien I would post a quarantine sign post... hazardous waste

What with NASA bombing the moon and dropping impactors and other space junk onto anything they can hit and calling it 'science' No wonder they have budget problems

BTW This is only the big stuff... doesn't show the "washers"

Welcome to Earth if you can make it here alive

The so-called "washer" looks like a ring because it is close to the camera and out of focus. The lens is catadioptric, and the resulting bokeh are ring-shaped. The pulsations are due to tumbling of the out-of-focus object.

A new Bokeh supporter What happened to DepthofField? So now it's a bokeh and not a washer...
And weed Whacker worked so hard to prove it's a washer

Gotta love it

lmao @ some people and their it was anything but a ufo or alien attitude.

Answer this it possible..that it was an alien?

Is it possible..that it was a ufo?..possibly flown by aliens?

There is only one answer for that..YES.Because you CAN"T prove aliens don't exist.
