I spent a night at the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse shooting time lapse photos in order to create an up coming video. While I was looking through my footage I realized there was something in the video that I could not explain. Its much larger than your typical plane appears, and its moving way faster than clouds. Can you explain what this object could be? The object appears at 10 seconds, and lasts a total of 16 frames, or 176 seconds (11 second interval X 16 frames) 176 seconds total. Each frame represents a 10 second photograph. The object was visible for just under 3 minutes total so I doubt it’s a meteor, shooting star as those typically only last a few seconds. What are your thoughts?
