What was it, the uploader asks. What was it, indeed!
I hope this is real… I don’t yet know if it’s real footage or not, but if it isn’t CGI then this sighting is well and truly within the Way Cool class. And it is a certainty that not too many happenings populate that category, so I’m excited.
As are others. Even Jim Oberg likes this one… that’s significant, trust me.
He had this to say about it, (and more), at this ATS thread…
Some steps are obviously needed for verification, but because this blip appears to pass BEHIND the solar array, it must be at a significant range and has my interest. I’d definitely call it unusual and not your typical spacecraft-shed dandruff.

This video was sent to us from an anonymous person who was recording the ISS live feed. The UFO rises over the horizon, makes a smooth turn, flashes light a few times, moves behind the space stations solar panels, and then disappears out of view! What was it??
In order to see this properly you should definitely watch it in full screen and at the highest resolution of 720p, as it is really quite small in the frame and you’d surely miss the very sporty rising up shenanigans entirely.
As for the timings of the events listed in the description above, you’ll see the little light rise, straight up, apparently out of the atmosphere, at 9 seconds to the the left of center on your screen, just to the right of a small star(?) that is itself just over the horizon. At 21 seconds it has turned sharply right and then goes off to the right just above the Earth’s edge. It is also a possibility that the rising up bit is from behind the Earth.
Either way, though… it’s all good and this thing must be quite large if it is truly at the apparent distance.
Just after it settles into level flight, we see flashes of light, seemingly a tad intermittent. But they keep going off in their own time; and when they do, the object goes faster. It is really cranking by the time it gets all the way to the right. I am thinking a lot about that speed… and the distance it covers in the short while we see it. Be real handy to know just how far it travels and how far away it really is.
Need to keep an eye on this thread, for if the verification sought by Jim and We the Serious pan out as to the authenticity of this footage and it is there on said footage from the original ISS source – then this is huge.
Ah, see! The speed was just calculated at the thread by ChaoticOrder, who came up with a result of 292,392 kmh at the end, which is 181 683.966 mph! This persons work was then bashed by Oberg due to “assumptions in the methodology” but was defended by ChaoticOrder. All I can say is that it’s booking along pretty good.
If it is a creation it is well done; and if not, well, then I wonder if it’s ours. Seems much more likely to me than that other possibility if only due to it’s behavior. It could surely be so and if it is, as I say in the sidebar, “My regards to the Admiral, Langley.”
And by the way, dear Langley, if you are indeed listening, please consider letting us all in on it, I think it’d be welcomed.

Dammit, I just KNEW this’d bite me and I’d regret posting it. I just knew it.
I feel sad about this. I feel like such a fool.
Please forgive my epic fail, let this be a lesson for you all.

Here is yet another hoax on YouTube…

After hours of searching, the date of the event has been discovered. The video was recorded on November 30, 2010.
Video from the ISS on that date has been checked, and the object is not present in the original live feed. The object must have been added with computer special effects, and is fake.
The video also seems to have been flipped vertically, and mirrored horizontally to increase the difficulty of indentifying it.
Seriously, I apologize. To all of you.
