Well, I read the whole other thread and saw a few people saying Phage was explaining an entirely different object than they were talking about. The
only reply he ever made that I saw was to say there were suddenly just two smudges instead of one and dropped it.
One member got a beautiful close up of it and posted just the pics without another word. Interestingly enough, you can even recognize the damn thing
in that post and I wonder if that's why he posted that way and said nothing at all. It wasn't a UFO...or, well, I guess technically.
It COULD be
If it'd been a satellite, some clever user with too much time would have correlated the ISS with a crossing satellite on it's path and just for the
bragging rights to be the first to see it. So...Not a UFO... Not a Satellite... What ever was in orbit in August of 2011....wouldn't have shown up on
any inventories to track....and would have been comfortably passing THAT close to the ISS without red lights flashing everywhere?
The second copy of the Air Force’s X-37B robotic space plane landed at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California early Saturday morning, ending a
record-breaking 469-day orbital mission that began atop an Atlas rocket launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida, on March 5, 2011. The safe landing of
Orbital Test Vehicle 2 after more than 15 months in space is an indisputable triumph for the US military and space industry. Much less certain is the
X-37′s future. Budget cuts, labor woes and the looming specter of a Chinese rival could blunt the diminutive robo-shuttle’s orbital
Some can call it cosmic garbage or a booger in flight, as one hinted it might be. The photos on the other thread and the close up just confirmed what
my hunch was the first play through and before even reading comments..... I'm just surprised I'm the only one on that whole other thread to even
consider there WAS something just like that....exactly like that....in orbit at that time and entirely 'off the record' for where it was and what it
was up to.
If I'm right, that's the only footage I've seen of it in orbit from that side. Nice!
