According to stellarium yesterday morning at 6:45 Jupiter wasn't visible. Mars was present at a magnitude of -0.32 but I don't think it was Mars I was filming.

I know the night sky relatively well through years of gazing up at it in awe.

Saturn is visible in an Easterly direction at that time, low on the horizon. I was looking West/South West when I spotted whatever it is.

What is that?

As a daily PS user, blowing things up on photoshop (or similar) and adujsting colors and all that does not reveal what something is. It actually distorts what we are looking at.

Satellites are easiest seen in early morning before sunrise, or after sunset while the curvature of the earth still blocks out light 'pollution' from the sun, but still allows for light reflection from the sun by objects in orbit.

If this object was travelling from West to East, this is good indication that this was a satellite.

Should at least show the shape inside it.

Just to point out.....the image is only as good as the camera taking it.

Software like photoshop wont bring out any more detail in an image that is lacking in it. The phone was on full zoom, you can clearly see the sensors working overtime trying to make sense of the image, focus etc.

Messing about with an image doesnt always yield results...as your picture shows


What you have posted it pointless.

No it's not. It still has pretty colors.

I've got it...with the picture blown up and the colors distorted...I can clearly see it is a bunch of multi-colored pixels!


Ya...blowing it up and just causing more distortion..does not seem to help at all!

Then we may have the case of an extremely bright satellite! It was definitly travelling from west to east. Iridium flare maybe? How long to those iridium sats catch the sun for?

Looks like a couch potato to me.


Come on, tell me you don't see Android here?





edit on 24-1-2012 by Manhater because: (no reason given)


I don't see an android...looks like my 5 year old daughter going nuts with water colors to me!


Maybe a really colorful microscopic image of a sperm cell?


Nothing that helps me identify the light source in the sky that was filmed though!

Manhater; no personal disrespect, but, you're notorious for this image distortion as 'proof' or 'evidence' tactic.

Please, could you please, please please, take lots of pictures of window reflections, lens flare, smoke, ordinary things, fruit in the grocery store with light reflecting off the skin, light bulbs, and other things, and apply the very same exact technique you're becoming notorious for so that you can see for yourself that applying the same techniques to ordinary things like smoke, window reflections, and other reflected glare, similar results occur.

Distorting things in an image manipulation program is like throwing an ocelot with a pancake on its head in the middle of a debate about trench warfare in WWI. It adds nothing, and only confuses people that are easily confused.

I'm not sure what city your in, so I guessed Whitehaven and plugged it into the tracker from spaceweather.com. If you click the link at 644 yesterday morning the ISS should have been clearly visible flying over your area. I would go out on a limb and say that was it. Hope this helps.

No, I'm too tired, plus, I give up.

If their going to invade, I'm the first one on the shuttle bus.

Im in Workington but Whitehaven is only a few miles away. You may have solved my mystery thankyou! It's the firsttime I've seen the ISS if thats what it is.

Edit: I've just checked your link and I would say it was most definitly the ISS. I never thought it would be that bright to be honest?

it can be very bright. I check the tracker once a week or so for my location so I can go out and look at it. Save the link, you can plug your city into it and it will tell you when you can see brighter sats and the ISS.
Glad I could help.

I just checked your city is in the drop down menu. Link with drop down menu for your county

I see another user of Stellarium, it is sure a very useful too. Judging by the colors which are not always correct but let's suppose they are, these white-reddish quick changing looks like Sirius (alpha Canis Majoris). Either way, sorry ot looks like nothing special, it didn't even move, I only saw the camera moving.
