Nope. It (in the OP video) is not, obviously, an ongoing dump. BUT, there are just ice crystals, there, from either the dump that had occur ed, or from some other source. And, No---- they don't have their "own light source"!
It is quite obvious that the camera's exposure settings are way off, because it's dark (nightside of the orbit) but some sunlight is still catching the ice, or they are getting light reflecting off the vehicle itself. The BLOOM in the video, when the camera tilts back down at the end, and shows the Shuttle structure is the hint, there. The exposure settings are auto-adjusting, as it is too bright, momentarily.
Have you never played with a video camera?
The "motion" of the particles is an illusion, too. Also, they are quite close to the lens. Makes them look "fast".
It is quite likely the Shuttle may have been adjusting its attitude, as well....the camera field of view would then change, even if the particles were just "floating" next to the vehicle, they would seem to all "move" in unison. There a a few rogue bits, coming from elsewhere, that cross the frame too.
DEBRIS, in one word. It is painfully evident, the FIRST time I saw this same video (in another thread, BTW!).

if there was a alien fleet up there, then they would be past of as dust/debris anyway.
they proberbly are dust/debris but you know..... how would we know. believers would always claim u.f.o's/alien spacecraft, and skeptics would always claim dust/debris, regardless.
it would create a bit of a dilemma if they actually did show up. infact this thread is exactly how that thread would go
