I also share the belief that we are not alone, but with literally billions of bits of junk up there; I think its more likely that it is space junk rather than an alien craft. Also, yes other countries have declassified alleged UFO files; but they were only classified mostly due to cold-war paranoia and after reading through quite a few of them; I can't understand why they were classified in the first place, they're that mundane.

I wish people would stop assuming agencies know more than they're telling us - think of the massive amounts of public funding NASA could get even if they only hinted at finding life somewhere.

There's so many satellites and space debris up there it could be anything including a UFO.

You have to understand all the space junk up there is traveling to fast to be seen or recorded on video.

Broad statement, pretty sure the more massive pieces are visible.

Well the way it works is that the ISS is travelling at thousands of Km/h itself, and many of the objects will have similar orbits. So they will appear to be moving slowly in relation to the ISS.
Just like being on a busy highway.

Exactly.

You mean when people grow up, they sit on their couch watching the pros play?


Back to the topic. I don't know why NASA have such poor quality footage? You would think they can get better camera, is that the best money could buy?

What are the criteria that people use to determine that these phenomena are 'otherworldly'? Movement? Speed? How is regular 'dandruff' eliminated using said criteria? I'd really like to know because I have yet to see any criteria put forth that can account for the variables of normal debris/ice particles and how they could behave in space.

lol c'mon. you're watching digital zoom on distant objects on a re-compressed youtube user video of the original compressed nasa public release videos taken from cameras that may have had who knows what purpose other than zooming in on distant space junk...

you can't just look at this end result and say: nasa, you suck. You can't even tell what the original footage looked like.
I think it's highly unlikely their main cameras are logitech webcams, and that they're total idiots.

Space debris is in orbit, and that's pretty fast. We're talking thousands of miles per hour. Particles of dust can strike a satellite with so much force that the impact creates a plasma burn. There is so much junk, old satellites and current satellites that we almost have a visible ring around the planet. NASA has to wait for a 'window' in all this junk just to get a launch. This was an image created on BBC's Stargazing Live. Its crowded up there, so I guarantee all these 'UFOs' that people keep spotting from NASA TV etc are just junk.

It's good to have some skepticism so you won't be gullible & naïve. But to much skepticism
can make you narrow minded to all possibilities no matter how unconventional.
