Fast moving objects seen at 0:27 (bottom), 0:30 (middle), 0:32 (top and bottom right) etc. What are they? They don't seem to originate from the rocket or the payload.

Are they other satellites? I thought that space is so big and ill-lit that we are unlikely to see so many other satellites in such a short duration.

  • $\begingroup$ @OrganicMarble Nothing definite. The objects seem to originate from the left side of the video near what I think is the horizon / earth (bright bluish line). It also looked like they are following curved paths as well as being farther away from the camera than the satellite. $\endgroup$ – AJN Jan 8 '20 at 15:46

  • $\begingroup$ So just debris from the separation ? $\endgroup$ – AJN Jan 8 '20 at 15:51

    $\begingroup$ On frame by frame play, It does seem to originate from the booster and the satellite. $\endgroup$ – AJN Jan 8 '20 at 15:55
