Nice job on the video collage, but I do not think it shows anything abnormal going on in low Earth orbit.
There are about 500,000 pieces of space junk ranging in size from 0.5 inches and 21,000 objects larger than 4 inches in diameter being actively
tracked. The odds say you are going to see them occasionally. Photographed outside their orbits, it is plain to see they are following the curvature
of Earth, but if the camera catches one inside it's orbit, you could not tell, as they would look like they are going away or toward the earth.
Additionally, junk from the same sources tend to travel together, and that is also evident in the video.
