Surprise Ultraviolet Party in the Sky

Original Caption Released with Image:

Galaxies aren't the only objects filling up the view of NASA's Galaxy Evolution Explorer. Since its launch in 2003, the space telescope -- originally designed to observe galaxies across the universe in ultraviolet light -- has discovered a festive sky blinking with flaring and erupting stars, as well as streaking asteroids, satellites and space debris. A group of six streaking objects -- the identities of which remain unknown -- can be seen here flying across the telescope's sight in this sped-up movie.

The two brightest objects appear to perform a sharp turn then travel in the reverse direction. This illusion is most likely the result of the Galaxy Evolution Explorer overtaking the objects as it orbits around Earth.

Careful inspection reveals four additional faint objects with the same timing and behavior. These faint objects are easiest to see during the retrograde portion of their paths. Three appear between the two bright sources, and one is above them, near the edge of the field of view.

These bonus objects are being collected in to public catalogues for other astronomers to study.

    These objects are ET space craft.  They look like the traditional flying saucer type. They are very large and the crew are Nordics.  They launched from Mars and will return there.  They are near earth to resupply the Nordic underground base in Antarctica.  I see them traveling out to the asteroid belt and resupplying bases there before returning to Mars.

    "Shooting-stars" - The same basic effect may occur with a sizable object traveling through open space at extremely high speeds. If these are deep field recordings and pics, then we're talking about very, very large scale objects that are seen moving. Since space is not a vacuum, but filled with gas and dust, anything moving through it at high speed would excite the particles around it and cause them to super-heat and give off energy (photons etc.) - Right angle turns should start sinking in to new eyes and ears on the subject - Not likely a comet and obviously if there was a remote chance of THAT being the answer the JPL guys would have been all over it already. In conclusion, what is being witnessed here are Obama's massive, highly rapid moving Death Stars that he has created with our trillions of dollars over the last 5 years. Man they built those quick! But hey, if you're going to be the next hitler, ya gotta act fast!
