You may or may not have heard, but there's another one of those strange UFO videos that's been circulating recently, taken from the International Space Station. The video, while not as "exciting" as that video taken from the space shuttle Discovery many years ago (STS 48), is nonetheless just about as provocative, for several reasons that we'll get back to. Here's the video and a short accompanying article from Zero Hedge, courtesy of E.G. (and many others, to whom a big thank you for sharing it):

Did ISS Live-Feed Accidentally Capture "Top Secret" Hypersonic Vehicle Test?

There are a number of things to note about this video:

1) For the first few minutes, as what is clearly a mechanical object or machine of some sort is clearly in view - say, for the first five minutes or so - there is "normal chatter" between the ground and the crew. One can hear a lady with a foreign accent - presumably Russian - speaking to the crew, and softly in the background, one can hear a male voice speaking in Russian. Neither the crew nor the ground say anything about the object, but it is clear that someone either in the space station crew or on the ground see the object, for the camera resets to keep it in view several times during the twenty-plus minutes of the video;

2) Then, all conversation stops, and no voices are heard again for the rest of the video. In this, there's an interesting parallel to the STS 48 UFO video, where "ordinary mundane conversation" is overheard while various unidentified objects perform intricate maneuvers in front of the camera, before all conversation stops for several minutes. One can easily believe that in both cases, conversation continued, but on secure channels;

3) The object in this most recent video performs no intricate or UFO-like maneuvers. Instead, it appears to be "pacing" the International Space Station for the bulk of the video in plain view against a backdrop of clouds (which we'll get to in a moment);

4) While appearing to pace the ISS, the object also slowly rises until, toward the end of the video, it rises above the atmosphere, accelerating rapidly, but again, not in a "UFO-like" fashion;

5) As the object accelerates through the outer atmosphere and then above it, its original dark gray metallic appearance changes to a bright yellow, and a very faint "trail" - rather like heat from an exhaust or rocket can be seen, but once out of the atmosphere, this trail takes on its one very visible color of an emerald green.

For me, however, strange as all this was, there was one more thing that I noticed, but before we get to that, much of the chatter and interpretation of this event seems to be leaning to secret human technology, and specifically, to "space plains" allegedly being operated and tested by DARPA. I'll admit, that what I saw certainly has "human black projects" written all over it. Twenty-one trillion missing dollars can buy a lot of black projects. But like some interpreters of the STS 48 video, I think "Someone X"  very definitely wanted us (or "Someone Y") to see this "thing", whatever it was. For over twenty minutes it's in full view, not maneuvering, but just parked there as if to say "Hey! Over here! Look at me!" which whomever is controlling the camera is all to ready to oblige. The conversation is all to reminiscent of the STS 48 conversation: lots of mundane "talk" about ice crystals (in STS 48's case) or "filters" (in this case), while outside, something extraordinary is going on.

But as I said, the thing that I thought was the most strange about this video was not the object itself, but

6) the backdrop of clouds against which it was seen.

Clouds are everywhere, and as the video proceeds, they get much thicker. Indeed, one hunts around during the twenty-two minutes of the video to see a rare glimpse of ordinary clouds, or land, and what land that is seen is seen through a misty haze of more clouds. As the video proceeds, the clouds get more peculiar. Far below one sees the white puffs of ordinary cumulus clouds. But higher up, almost everywhere as the video proceeds, there is a haze of ugly gray mist. If one did not know better, one might think one was looking at some sort of brackish gray ocean. I'm certainly no "cloud expert", but these things don't look like any kind of high altitude cirrus cloud I've ever seen because unlike cirrus clouds they appear to be thick, and by the end of the video, they're nearly everywhere. The view of Earth is completely obscured.

So here's my high octane speculation: I have to wonder, given that this "object"- when it finally lifts far above the international space station, seems to leave a "trail" of some sort -if in fact we might have caught a glimpse of an "extremely high altitude" chemtrail spraying platform...

...because I don't know about you, but those murky thick gray clouds in the video look mighty peculiar to me.

In fact, while we're at the end of the twig, why not point out that white clouds below the gray clouds - especially since the latter are so wide spread - seems to pose a "lighting problem": shouldn't the gray clouds show higher albedo, and the cumulus clouds be more in shadow? Might we be looking at a fake? I don't happen to think so(at least, not at the moment and not without a much closer and more time-consuming look), but the possibility should be mentioned.

I don't know. Any way one slices it, this is one very peculiar video...

See you on the flip side...

    I don`t like cutting off the thin twig you are running on, as usually I
    like your speculation and mostly agree with them, not always though. As
    in this case.

    I will try and explain in short why what is seen in the video is, sadly
    maybe, nothing but a spec of water or any kind of liquid.

    As ISS is moving around the earth it has to rotate in order to keep the
    sun collectors in ideal position. That alone explains kind of
    everything. Due to that the dot seems to move into space without ever
    changing its relative position to ISS, only that the camera zoom kind of
    removes objects of the station to put things in perspective. And as the
    angle changes the liquid spot, first dark in the shadow turned towards
    earth, picks up the sun reflecting same into the camera turning white
    and like a rainbow spectrum (including green) with ISS rotating and
    being hit in an sharper angle the color of that reflection changes. And
    with the zoomed in camera trying to keep track of the earths horizon the
    spot goes off camera seemingly going into space.

    Had to sleep a night over it to get this one.^^

    I don`t say there is nothing out there to see, I just doubt that it
    would be allowed in plane view for so long on live camera.

    Within the past couple days, MrMBB333 posted a picture of some large grey-smudgy ‘cloud’, NOT a dust storm type….I wonder if that is part of what is being discussed here???

    It seems quite clear that Whoever has been “in control” of this planet for awhile does not have saving our human life form as a top priority!! O.k……I’ll just say it!! I wonder if some AI program that we ‘normies’ don’t know about is terraforming our planet?!!!

    Chemtrails on steroids,very high octane.Can anyone prove it? Maybe Bayer has the answer.

  4. zendogbreath on February 26, 2020 at 9:48 pm

    It does look like a rise in altitude. Does the distance of the object from the ISS along with an attitude change of the ISS explain the appearance of the rise?

    • zendogbreath on February 26, 2020 at 9:49 pm

      an increase in distance that is.

  5. unclejed on February 26, 2020 at 9:23 pm

    SpaceX Dragon Capsule after undocking heading back down? The glowing effect towards the end should be angle of the sun as the ISS enters terminator, sunset effects. The pace the object appears to be moving away would be consistent with an initial short thruster burst probably before the recording starts. It does not appear to engage any main engine then accelerate away at high speed. The object is likely at the same altitude below the ISS for the entire video, however as it moves away and the camera angle changes as it is tracked, there is the illusion the object is gaining altitude.

    The clouds? If it’s recent and depending on the location , may be influenced by fire smoke in the southern hemisphere. Towards the end, the camera has gone from pointing down orientation to pointing toward orbit path, the focal length would be reasonable and effecting depth of field of the atmosphere which is now being viewed on an acute angle limiting fine detail.

    Looks like a routine return to earth of a supply capsule to me.

    • goshawks on February 27, 2020 at 5:05 am

      I tend to agree that it is a near co-orbital vehicle. The very slow changes in distance & elevation relative to the ISS (but it is close) indicate an authorized arrival or departure. The more-distant view angled beyond the atmosphere is still relatively close; enough to be safe but nonetheless showing some detail. Probably for viewing an engine burn. Seems routine to me…

      Good thoughts Jed. They do seem a little familiar. Thanks for the ‘splainin’.

  6. marcos toledo on February 26, 2020 at 7:51 pm

    Mach 5 the old X-15 spaceplane was doing Mach 6 fifty to sixty years ago. Is this something more advanced than the XB-37 mini-shuttle maybe. I just wish they stop the Musk- Biglow dog and pony show.

  7. TheThinker101 on February 26, 2020 at 7:45 pm

    It is pretty unique looking. But I think this is still an average piece of technology of ours.

  8. Westcoaster on February 26, 2020 at 5:36 pm

    I watched this video several times and seems like when it’s almost out of frame at top screen it changes its shape and color. There’s a purple tinge on the right side, then as it rises there’s a green trail below the craft. Just prior to that you can see some sorta trail farther below.
    And it sort of looks like the “Black Knight” satellite that’s been in orbit since rocks got hard!

  9. Syncromyst on February 26, 2020 at 5:02 pm

    Regarding the clouds: I’ve noticed over the years a bizarre cloud phenomena where the sky in one direction fills with a uniform dark gray cloud bank reaching to the height of a thunder head with multiple small white cumulus clouds floating before it. No wind, no thunder and lightening. I don’t recall seeing this until recently, as in the last 5 years or so. This particular cloud formation seems to occur more in the summer. So, would not surprise me if the chem spray got released when that DARPA plane was overhead.

    I had the following video appear in my yt recommended list before I’d watched the original…

    “…it was a component, called ICS Exposed Facility (ICS-EF), part of Kibo’s Inter-Orbit Communication System, which was jettisoned by the Canadian robotic arm, as reported by ISS Daily Summary Report:

    Russian Avangard (hypersonic glide vehicle)?

    • Tommi H on February 26, 2020 at 5:45 pm

      It can go up&down why not?

  12. relicsfromatlantis on February 26, 2020 at 12:30 pm

    Interesting. That is not the way I see it at all. From my rudimentary understanding of geometry it looks rather like the object, in a lower orbit and outpacing the ISS goes from nearly directly below toward the “horizon” and never goes “up”/farther from the earth but tracks the same orbit, lower altitude. As it gets farther away the angle to view, in relation to “down” raises so to a “stationary object” (from the point of view of the camera) it would appear to rise, as expected.
    The change in color/briteness is interesting but as you watch you will notice it change from dark gray/metalic to a somewhat brighter color through out which, again, deferring to my simple understanding of nature may just be a change in orientation with relation to the sun so that it just drifts into a more conducive reflection angle.
    Also, the clouds… I don’t see anything out of the ordinary so please enlighten me but looking down through the very diffuse upper clouds they are not obvious, but when you start looking at the atmosphere toward the horizon the thin high clouds add up to a fat shmear of gray.
    I am not disputing earth based deep dark technology caught on film, just the discussion of its apparent movement and trajectory.

  13. Robert Barricklow on February 26, 2020 at 12:19 pm

    This is something that occurs to me daily/”they” are not only destroyed our clouds; they’re destroying Earth’s living biosphere.
    Sometimes I see cloud formations I know are far beyond “natural”.
    So your observation rings true from my perspective:
    The sky is not the limit…
    to their chemtrail destruction of our natural atmosphere.

    From the living wonder of complex living soil, to the heavens above; and even man himself, they are destroying our natural wonders, before our very eyes…, and perversely, even their own[embedded pun]…
    eyes in their perverted chemtrail skies.

    Everywhere you look, your reminded of their perversions.
    Up, down, or across the corporatized landscape; they’re wickedly twisting mother nature’s masterpiece towards a digitized twisted-sister’s perverted, dead-to-the-world fake copy.

    My rant’s just beginning/as Sergeant Preston would say,
    That’s a wrap King.

      The dark gray clouds of Mordor are enveloping our planet. We are in the grip of a some kind of malevolence.

  14. zendogbreath on February 26, 2020 at 9:40 am

    First i have heard of iss being anything but far above clouds. What clouds travel at that altitude? What altitude is that?

    First thought was ‘is this project blue beam ti distract frmo weaponized 5g virus?’

    • relicsfromatlantis on February 26, 2020 at 12:33 pm

      It is way above the clouds. Just the angle of the camera makes it seem like the ISS is drifting into a cloud bank (only to have it fall off camera still far below).

  15. WalkingDead on February 26, 2020 at 9:27 am

    One would think they would have better cameras on the ISS to better capture such events. Maybe they do.

  16. enki-nike on February 26, 2020 at 9:26 am

    The space vehicle went higher and higher above the atmosphere and then where did it go??

  17. DanaThomas on February 26, 2020 at 6:19 am

    Conversation stops as one of “their” reps is beamed up for a sip of zero-gravity tea from the onboard samovar?
