Also see it in full screen, looks like an aircraft but I see no lights? US do fly without lights on special ops, I know that but in the middle of the UK ??? Strange! :wacko:

Plane or satellite


 


What was the duration of the video footage? What was the exposure time per frame?

Not a plane I left it running much longer and caught a couple of planes and the lights were very bright and obvious. I think it's a satellite...or aliens :)

You could work out how much arc distance it is covering per unit time. But not knowing its altitude working out its speed might be tricky.

Maybe it was Hung il Gong on the way back from his quick trip to the Sun, it looks red and in the time it took him he'd still be cooling down.. ;)
