Unfiltered comments about the sighting:
This is the middle part of it going by, note that it seems to go up and down very slowly, this is why I don't think it was a satellite. Now when you hear me say
" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" If you can see it there seems to be a tether on it", at this point, please try to filter, raise gamma, what ever you think will help point out that feature. I will say even though this is a hd cam at perfect focus it does not show it as it looks with the naked eye through the telescope. Through the telescope you would be-able to see a strange like tether connected to a smaller object, in perspective to the size seen in the telescope like 1 inch away, which would mean it is miles long. it is taunt while connected to the smaller object and the main object has features that look like there is a gray color in the center like our moon has. The smaller object to the right of the main object seems very small and like a tiny LED light kinda. It is moving at a steady speed visible to seem like wobbling or swaying like a clock pendulum.
Note: I am aware of the two new satellites that are in orbit of the earth right now. To research the "Van Allen Belt ", but that said for me to see a gap of about an inch between the main larger object and the smaller one. They are Connected by a tether seen through a telescope and knowing they are miles above us makes me believe it is not one of those.
Other Notes: I do realize that it may seem like at the end of the first edited version that the lens on the telescope was refracting it, but I assure you it is not. I viewed that whole part with my eyes, and did not notice that I did in fact catch the whole dismissal of the object in the recording. I lucked out bro, this is really something wonderful I caught and I would hope that somewhere someone else captured it too.
Thanks Joshua, this truly rocks!
