Unfortunately, there are so many little things that could have passed between the two planes. Passing by in that direction would seem to indicate
that it wasn't going that fast just by itself... but if the plane was travelling at Economical Cruising Speed -- 737 is listed at 796 km/h (or 494
m/h for the imperials) -- This thing could have been sitting still, and would still pass by in a blur.
If it was moving at all in the opposite direction, its speed in that direction would be added to the travelling speed of the aircraft. In fact, it
could be going fast (as birds go) in the same direction as the plane, and still get overtaken to make it appear as though it was going really fast the
I want to see stuff in these videos too, but I think until we get a clear image that shows... something... we'll have to chalk it up to a lucky catch
of something potentially mundane, compounded by the optical illusion of "Apparent Speed" of the other aircraft we can see.
