Okay. You know how you're on an airplane and the flight attendant asks you to turn your cell phone off, and you're like; I ain't turnin' my cell phone off, that's doin' no harm to the damn airplane? Well, this is what we get. That's what happens, it gets up there, bounces around on the satellite, and bam! Just turn your damn cell phone off. Now you're gonna drop off a cliff cause your GPS don't work.

Because there is no possibility of light reflecting off space junk right?

The blue screen was a nice touch. In the second video it does seem like a large enough object that we should be able to put a name on it.

Let's see...Since we've been into space, we've left God knows how many pieces of junk in orbit around Earth. Clearly, this couldn't be one of THOSE.

It must be aliens!

And did you float out the idea that it was junk...from aliens?! Huh?! Did, ja?!

/If aliens aren't blowing shiat up and killing humans on a mass scale, I'm not interested. Otherwise it's just Space 'Squatching.

Why? I liked that random rambling comment...

I was thinking that editing would be nice for awhile, until I saw so many people called out on what they had said before...

Might be, might not be. It's still interesting and worth hearing about. At least we haven't had a Miley Cyrus or Justin Bieber thread in awhile, give me a million more UFO threads...

Looks like the same shiny thing photographed by the mars rovers.  Whatever it is, it obviously must have taken off from mars and entered earth orbit.

First of all, I can't believe a semi-legitimate media source picked this up, because I'm pretty sure NASA doesn't post videos under the handle "StreetCap1."

Second, it's pretty obvious that it's light reflected in the camera lens. We're looking through a window, which is reflecting the faint image of the camera lens. That spherical camera lens is itself reflecting what it's seeing through the window.

Third, if it was an actual object, I'm pretty sure Tony Stewart would have run it over by now.

This is why I added linking to comment edits.  So you cannot claim they were never said.  Just what you intended without making a second post and adding *(above correction.)

Yep, aliens capable of traversing unimaginably vast tracts of space, transporting their clearly magical technology and all of the knowledge requisite to build and maintain it, have repeatedly come to visit the planet where hairless monkeys have made the Kardashians celebrities.

Hey, stupid farkers and humanity in general, UFO's don't have to be either aliens or nothing. They are most likely upper-atmospheric phenomenon like ball lightning. Am I a few hundred years too early for you guys, or what?

DGgeoff: Quick! Get Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum to Area 51!


Coming next summer, Codependence Day where new aliens show up but this time they get us to bring our guard down by asking for help. They provide us with technology and we provide them with resources and labor. Eventually they're able to infiltrate all the highest levels of government and control and keep us on an addictive electronic drip by slowly releasing better technology that makes us ever more productive but also chains us to our labors. The catch is that it allows them to track, record and review the location and activity of every piece of networked technology on the planet. It's going to be a great science fiction thriller, I hope there's a happy ending.

Have a 10-15 minutes editing period after posting. There really isn't any excuse for not having such a basic feature that's available everywhere else.

I thought we went over this yesterday. This is what happens when you let a whole bunch of uneducated whackjobs watch video they don't understand. Stuff like this happens all the time at the ISS. The blue screens happen because we don't have worlwide coverage for HD streaming yet. It isn't that hard to undertand.

Vinny Gambini: [to the jury] Hey, how ya doin'?[to witness]
Vinny Gambini: Mr. Crane, what are these pictures of?
Ernie Crane: My house and stuff.
Vinny Gambini: House and stuff. And what is this brown stuff on your window.
Ernie Crane: Dirt.
Vinny Gambini: Dirt. And what is this rusty, dusty, dirty looking thing that's covering your window?
Ernie Crane: That's a screen.
Vinny Gambini: A screen! It's a screen. And what are these really big things that are right in the middle of your view of the Sac-o-Suds and your kitchen window, what do we call these big things?
Ernie Crane: Trees?
Vinny Gambini: Trees, that's right, don't be afraid just shout 'em right out when you know 'em. And what are these thousands of little things that are on trees?
Ernie Crane: Leaves.
Vinny Gambini: And these big bushy things between the trees.
Ernie Crane: Bushes.
Ernie Crane: Bushes. So, Mr. Crane, you can positively identify the defendants, for a moment of 2 seconds, looking through this dirty window, this crud covered screen, all of these trees, with all of these leaves on them, and I don't know how many bushes.
Ernie Crane: Looks like five.
Vinny Gambini: Uh, uh, uh, don't forget, this one and this one.
Ernie Crane: Seven bushes!
Vinny Gambini: Seven bushes. So, what do you think? Isn't possible you just saw two guys in a green convertable and not necessarily these two particular guys?
Ernie Crane: I suppose.
Vinny Gambini: I'm finished with this guy.

The cool part is a lot of that stuff will be up for thousands of years before plunging back to Earth. The bronze age survivors of the civilization that arose from the survivors of the civilization that arose from the survivors of ours will be freaked out.

I think a lot of them are just having fun.  Like people worshiping the flying spaghetti monster, or arguing passionately about star trek.  It doesn't have to be real, it's a light hearted way to pass some time on this rock.  Of course, being bitter and resentful about what everyone else does another way, I guess.  So go for it.
 
2014-08-14 02:17:28 PM  
I'll let George Carlin handle this one. The joke goes something about how people who believes in UFO's are considered wackjobs despite having at least video and photographic evidence and eye-witness testimonials from trained pilots, while people who believe in all-powerful gods living in the sky are considered of sound and reasonable minds.

He goes more into this bit in his books. Really worth checking out on youtube since someone uploaded all this audiobooks on there.

Most space junk will be moving at thousands of km/hour WRT the space station.  Unless it was recently release from the station, and therefore flying in formation with it, it wouldn't be visible in the image for more then an instant, if that.  My bet is on some kind of glint within the optics.
 
2014-08-14 03:04:40 PM  
Always thought this one was kind of interesting. Not saying I buy into the premise, but it would be cool were it true.

I suppose space junk could account for it?
