It's threads like this that ruin ATS. Using youtube videos as the foundation for an unresearched, poorly thought out topic for discussion. Where are the rest of the sources on this wobble? Why is there no other information on a global "wobble" posted? Where is there any information at all? I don't mean some half-a*%ed opinion, I mean anything...anything at all that will support the claim being made. Also, don't even post a link to Zetatalk, that's a POS website at best. Looks like a third grader made it on geocities....
Here's how to create an ATS thread now days.
"Hey check out this youtube video! Oh, the research related to the video and any findings I spent time looking for are....uhhh....hey did you see this youtube video?!"
Why do people look for videos on youtube and then make up BS stories about them? Where's the research suggesting this was man made? Where's the proof? Where is anything but a youtube video that has something that vaugely showcases what your claims are? Threads like this are complete BS.

I don't make threads because I don't have time to get heavily involved researching bizzare stories. I refuse to type something into youtube and use that as the basis for my "facts".
I don't come here for BS.

Am I imagining things or does the earth wobble in the video at 50 seconds in to this video?
Anyone else see it? If so, any explanations?
In the comments section there is something about rocket boosters which was posted about an hour after I posted this on GLP, but not by the authors. Given that we see about half a revolution in six seconds (12 hours) the one second of wobble would represent about two hours, and I think it impossible the rockets would be firing for so long.

First of all, this is not a true "video movie", but rather a collection of still images strung together to create a time-lapse movie animation. With that in mind, the wobble could simply be one still-image frame in the "movie" taken when the satellite was in a slightly different position than it was for all the other still-image frames.
Therefore, that frame could have been picture taken before and after a two separate quick thruster burns over a two hour time period, and not necessarily during a continuous 2-hour thruster burn.
Or (and maybe more likely) the apparent wobble had nothing to do with an engine burn at all, but was simply because the guy putting all of the still images together to create this animation did a poor job getting the orientation of that one frame exactly like the orientation of all the other frames.
That's more likely than a wobble that looked violently Earth-shaking, and large enough to cause catastrophe all over the entire planet, yet was not felt.
