In this footage a strange object appears from above, stops for a while and flies back into space.

say what? It doesn't change direction. It doesn't stop. It doesn't 'fly' back - it simply 'fades' into view, staying exactly in the same place, then fades out again. Looks EXACTLY like a satellite that has briefly caught the sun with its solar panels - eg Google Iridium Flare.. Note that it does NOT move relative to the camera - so we also know it's most likely a geostationary comm's satellite.

satellites visibly move i thought. I have seen a satellite with out camera moving, comes across my sky just before 12. why would the sun shine on it at random points, what would be in the way, unless satellite is spinning. think i need to look up geostationary satelites as i know zilch on the subject lol

I agree with Chrlzs. There is nothing there to make me believe it was anything but a satellite or maybe a meteor striking the atmosphere at an angle which sent it skipping into space.

A geosynretic satellite obits the world @ the same speed as the world. Satellite TV is boradcast from them.

At night (specifically not long after sunset) they appear in glowing, but fade away as the earths shadow covers them. They appear to move against stars, but are only moving with the earth @ the same rotational speed.

Perhaps it was a vagabond group of interstellar extraterrestrial beings searching for a galaxy gas station

It's a satellite.

And it's spelled geosynchronous.

The period of orbit is approximately 23 hours 56 minutes and 4 seconds so they stay at exactly the same spot above Earth. To do so they need a very high altitude orbit of approximately 22236 miles. If sun is at the right angle they will glare like a mirror.

... they stay at exactly the same spot above Earth..

For the purposes of this discussion, yes, that's true enough.

But in fact a geosynchronous sat actually wanders a bit.. For anyone who wants to know why, try this explanation.

The two terms - geostationary and geosynchronous - tend to be (incorrectly) used interchangeably by Joe Public. And to be honest, it probably doesn't matter all that much unless you truly are a rocket scientist..

I should be more careful.
