This is very interesting.

Can any image experts confirm this footage?

They claim it's a fuel dump and burn by the X-37B.

I'm an amatuer but it looks pretty real to me.

Good source too, a regular spy hunter group with no such claims like this before.

What do you guys think?

The timing is right for it to be the X-37. It launched around 1pm EST on Tuesday afternoon.

Question.

Why does the rocket "retro-burn"?

The retro-burn is used to place it into a precise orbit by slowing the craft down.

Interesting, I always thought that the X space plane was all speculation. Not that I doubted they had something similar but I never knew it was common enough knowledge to say It took off at this time on this date and yes it is in fact this craft.

Cool.
