An analysis was now under way to try to understand its origin

2: The Earth surface stays totally level with the ISS all along the timelapse - as if the International Space Station never wobbles by a whisker in relation to our planet! Let me just express my opinion: this is just grotesquely silly. NASA - and ESA - are fooling with our minds.

2. Well maybe it is part of what makes an object stay in orbit the fact that it won't wobble. After all, in void, what kind of turbulence should make it wobble?

...could be explained with using some sort of telephoto lens from far enough?
Photographers look for these effects all the time, so it is no surprise if they are featured in NASA products of propaganda.
simonshack wrote:No. Telephoto lenses have very limited depth of field. Photographers use it for effect whenever a blurred background is wished - to make the foreground subject stand out in the picture.
The ISS is supposed to be at least 200 miles up in the sky. Show me a lens that can focus both the ISS and the Earth below it and I'll but it asap. I need it to snap a sharp picture of myself and the Space Station next time it passes over my house. Quite honestly, I wasn't expecting you to give me the old lens lesson treatment.
