Ødegaard: - It is a UFO
The light was above Voss in more than 23 minutes. As long as do not think Nesthus that satellites can be seen from a point in our latitudes. Now he asks people on the network if they have suggestions as to what it can be.

Astrophysicist Knut Jorgen Roed Ødegaard, has studied the video carefully. He states that it is a UFO.

It's actually not so easy to say what this is. By definition it is a UFO - an unidentified flying object, but that does not mean there are little green men visiting from other civilizations,

Here you go, now it's embeded too.



It seems one of the youtube users has nailed it down, this explanation proves itself satisfactory in solving the 'mystery'. Don't you think?


It's another satellite. It's very very high - range is 14,000 miles - getting close to geostationary. It's Glonass 2000-063A usspacecom catalog no 26564 launched in the year 2000. Because it has such a high orbit, it is much fainter and moving much more slowly than the lower orbiting satellites.

It could be a satellite. There's quite a few videos on here that look like this. Maybe even space debris or a rock flying through space


Prolly not this rock but they're out there

Bus-Size Asteroid to Give Earth Close Shave Friday


www.space.com...


A small asteroid will make an extremely close pass by Earth Friday (Jan. 27), coming much nearer than the moon, but the space rock poses no danger of impacting our planet, NASA scientists say.

The newfound asteroid 2012 BX34, which is about the size of a city bus, will pass within 36,750 miles (59,044 kilometers) of Earth at about 10:30 a.m. EST (1530 GMT) Friday, astronomers with NASA's Asteroid Watch program announced via Twitter.



While the near-Earth asteroid won't hit Earth, it may offer seasoned amateur astronomers a great show — if they are in the right viewing location and have good equipment.

I think you hit the nail on the head. Almost has to be a satellite.
On a side note...that video does have a pretty nice display of the Northern Lights as well as a few meteors....

As the notes from the youtube poster indicate. It is very slow to be a satellite, unless it is in a very high orbit.

Oops, should have read the post you were replying to. Sorry.

I watched the video and they are without doubt satellites .


- It's actually not so easy to say what this is. By definition it is a UFO - an unidentified flying object, but that does not mean there are little green men visiting from other civilizations, he said to NRK.no.



There must be an object that is out of the atmosphere to light so much at this point, explaining Ødegaard.

Mmmm a satellite maybe .


Even if the photographer does not even think the light is a satellite, a possible explanation being a so-called LEO satellites ( Low Earth orbit ), which move in orbit outside the atmosphere.

OK ... satellite then
