It apparently jumps around on screen in relation to the stars, meaning it wasn't an effect of the camera being bumped but of the craft's motion itself. Am I understanding that correctly or misunderstanding it?

Yeh, I have the same question as human_84. Several times the object suddenly moves so fast across the sky it draws a blurred motion in the camera. It doesnt seem to have particular purpose to it's eratic movement.

Also surprised this hasnt drawn mroe comments. It looks quite plausible. Very plausible actually.

On 2nd look, it seems that the video is cut right at the point the craft "moves" because you'll notice the stars fading out at that same moment. I'm really betting on the motion blur coming from the operator bumping or readjusting the camera. That being said I only re-watched the beginning of the video and didn't review the whole thing on my 2nd viewing today.

I am SO bored by this type of Lights In The Sky video clip.

How does he know it's the size of an aircraft carrier? Did he line up several destroyers for comparison? Maybe it's the size of Wales - many things are, allegedly! Wink

Did he do any research into what satellites other than the ISS might have been visible?

"I'm really betting on the motion blur coming from the operator bumping or readjusting the camera." That's what it says on the video!

"It looks quite plausible. Very plausible actually." Very plausible as what? An aircraft carrier? Wales? A previously undiscovered asteroid or comet? An aircraft of some sort?

It's a jerky piece of night-time video which is dead boring. Without additional information (about the equipment, operator, date, time and location), it tells us nothing.

Wales, I'd say.

Do asteroids light themselves up? Moving pretty fast to be a comet. If it was an aircraft, then its lights were unusual to say the least. Another satellite might well be the answer, but I would imagine that it would be pretty straightforward to find out.

Any ideas on what else it might have been?

What Rynner said. This is pi55-poor stuff. I was expecting to see basically an alien USS Nimitz parked over the Sydney Opera House. Not a lens-flarey, blurry blob on night-vision cameras, wobbling vaguely about.
