Just thought I'd round off this discussion/argument with some more data showing that (apart from the aircraft) the dots in the sky are just stars.
Back on page 4, I mentioned that the webcam in the top left corner was from the Tarumizu location looking northwest, and the time was clearly written
in the video.
So... a comparison of some random places in the video, and what stars are in the sky at that time, as shown by the excellent starmap program at
fourmilab.com. No editing of the images apart from cropping to show the same angles in each image. Plus a handdrawn grey mountain shape.
For those of you in the northern hemisphere, you can pretty much go outside tonight at the same times given here, look in the northwest and *see it
for yourself*. Dont take my word for it, go outside and have a look!
See for yourself. Get a pen and paper, draw what you see.
Get your own charts.
If nothing else, being familiar with the night sky is a good lifetime skill to have.
At 20:10 JST (8:10pm, 11:10 UTC) the constellation Cassiopea is visible, and to the left we see the star Almach in the constellation of Andromeda.
Two hours later, 22:20 JST (10:20pm, 13:20 UTC) the constellation of Perseus is setting.. The brightest star in that constellation, Mirfak, (and
others near it) will be easily seen, but more interestingly that constellation also holds Algol (not shown) but do a google search to see why its
interesting enough to find on your own.
To the upper right of the image are two fainter stars in Camelopardalis, the upper rightmost one of which is the binary star CS Cam.
An hour later, 23:17 JST (11:23pm, 14:17 UTC), Perseus has set, but coming into view in the upper right is the very bright star Capella in the
constellation of Auriga. Below and to the left are the three stars in a triangle: epsilon, eta and zeta.
But as I said earlier, dont take my word for it, I might be a disinformation agent.
Go outside and see for yourself. The times are given. Starcharts are readily available on the internet. Familiarise yourself with the night sky
and get and away from that keyboard.
