I love to watch the ustream international space station channel because it has a wonderful view and it is exciting to thing we are seeing space in real time. then i noticed a dot that was keeping pace with the space station. i thought maybe it might just be a light from the camera or maybe some kind of measuring laser instrument or something. but then i noticed that the dot went under the clouds so i decided to record it. i didn’t think that a man made aircraft would be able to keep pace with the international space station while traveling through the atmosphere.
i had just learned how to use snagit and used that to screenshot record. i hadn’t figured out the audio yet and i was talking, which is what the awkward whispering sound is in the background. mainly i was saying, “what is that?” “it is going under the clouds” and things of that nature.
i thought of submitting it right away but decided to do a bit of research and see if anyone else had noticed it. a few people mentioned it while watching but nobody seemed to know what it was.
it is very tiny, but i pointed it out with my cursor. i just wanted to know if i was seeing things or if this is really something i should wonder about.
it was going for quite some time until finally the screen went blue.
the file i uploaded was downloaded on may 29, 2016 but i recorded it on april 25, 2016. the snagit program records to google drive. the recording was taken in the evening, most likely around 7pm.
i would like to remain anonymous because i am an english teacher and i do not want to be vilified for my nightly star and planet gazing.
thank you for your consideration.
