The video shows what looks like three bright streaks and two dim streak move across the sky. At one point there's a flash. Suggestions given are a much of meteorites, or some kind of advanced technology craft, possibly alien.

However, I think it might just be the landing lights of a plane, smeared out by the long exposure of the old night camera. Something like an MD-80 perhaps, with the triangle of big lights, and two smaller lights.



Or a C5

I mocked up the scene in Aftereffects, creating a very similar effect with image persistence from frame to frame.

The 2 less bright central lights do seem to alternate.

There are 3 bright solid lights I would guess wing and nose and 2 less bright alternating lights maybe on the fuselage or on the near part of the wing,

Might help with ID the C5 seems to have 1 central beacon (flashing light), I wish there was some sort of published light pattern DB for aircraft.

i know a bit off topic... but...
Text at the beginning of the video stated that it was taken by a GEODS telescope during the year 1993 on day 335 at 032444Z (335th day of the year, December 1, at Greenwich Mean Time of 3:22:24 AM which corresponds to 5:22:24 PM, November 30 in Hawaii).
is this time possible? i'm confused why we are seeing black sky and stars before sunset.

this site says sunset was 5:44pm.

Bruce Maccabee's conclusion:
Maccabee has also commented on the silvarecord article.

One thing: why does Maccabee write that 032444 corresponds to 3:22:24am?

From the Silva Record article:

Surely that can just be explained by image persistence, the same effect that blurs out the lights into streaks?

5:22pm is before sunset on that date. Is it meant to be visible-light footage?

Yes, which is what I said in my video:

that's what Mick's OP explanation video shows.

I think Maccabee is saying that too in his above article, i didn't add that part because it is a long article

I don't think I would have bothered if I'd seen Macabee's article from the start. I thought this was newly revealed footage at first.

Trying to figure out how we see stars if the time was listed as 5:22 PM HST. I would love to have an instrument that can see stars during the daytime. I wonder what filter they were using (I am just joking here)? This indicates the time Macabee listed is probably not correct or misinterpreted. It could have been 3:22 AM HST and not 3:22 AM UTC. One would think that the telescope would have the location in the sky they were looking (RA/DEC or AZ/ALT). I tried to figure out the star patterns and I could not. I did not try too hard but I am guessing that this is in the milky way region based on the statement the scope was nearly overhead and the number of stars visible (assuming 3:22 UTC). Lots of missing data from this.
