    Some rocket launch ... SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket just launched yesterday -- this is likely it.

    To further explain - rockets usually have multiple stages and booster engines that separate and fly off to lessen the weight after most of their fuel is spent. What is being shown here is this - the main rocket continues to fly off on the left after separating from the booster, and the booster flies off to the right. The spirals are created as the rocket engine tries to reorient its position.

    Looks like the same thing that happened in Norway (i believe) a few years ago.
    There are videos of that event too.
    If i remember correctly, it was a rocket.

    I suppose that within the scope of the day to day paradigm in which we live, it is natural to attribute this phenomenon to a "rocket" but nothing about it really looks like that. The latest spacex launch was On Sunday, January 24 at 10:00 a.m. EST and not at night time.

    There was another post not long ago - I tried to find it, but couldn't, that was footage that looked similar to this - a night time strange looking ariel phenomenon ... with big gas plumes, etc. I found some footage of the official rocket launch and it became quite clear that the night time phenomenon was the rocket in question.

    You say that it looks nothing like a rocket launching, with the booster section separating, and flying off with the engine trying to re-calibrate direction, but I am wondering how many rocket launches have you seen?


    Here is an older video of a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, launch. Go to 3:00 to watch the stage separation .. watch the rocket continue off to the left and the booster fly off to the right ... looks pretty much exactly the same as what is in the OP video.



    It is a rocket ...

    I believe it is a rocket, at least it behaves like so.
    Not first time I watched a video like this, youtube has more check this out

    I haven't seen any rocket launches but in the YouTube comments for this video one person said they live at Cape Canaveral and have never seen a rocket launch like this. How do we explain the difference in a day time launch and a night time video recording?

    If you look at the video that DeDukshyn posted, around the time 3:27 you will see that the booster having separated from the second stage is doing pulse burns to orient itself for its return and landing. It punched liquid nitrogen (not fuel) to do these maneuvers prior to re-entry burns to slow itself. What you are seeing then is the frozen nitrogen being expelled from the many side thrusters. The video beatifully shows the spirals that you would see from a different angle/location.
    Since the Falcon9 is pretty much the only re-usable rocket (there are others now), it is understandable that people are seeing things that rockets in previous decades have not demonstrated.

    An advanced craft or even a secret craft would do its very best not to attract attention to itself unnecessarily.

    Quite a good short video about this weird phenomenon. (Yes, rockets )

    (This video was made in Oct 2018)

    First let's explain how the SpaceX rocket launch I posted, that looked extremely similar (did you even wtch it? Watch from 3:10 onward to the end), including the separation of the two parts, the giant gas plumes erupting at that particular moment in time, and the smaller spiral shaped plumes being emitted from the part on the right while the other part continues on up to the left, that exactly coincide with the engineered expectation of exactly how that specific rocket should perform, is not the same thing.

    If we can do that, then let's move on then to exploring what else the video in the OP might be. I said it was "likely" that spaceX launch - not for certain - there is no timestamp, no location description or any accompanying info on that video - as far as we know, it may be the exact same footage I posted from 2017 but just from a different angle.

    One thing is quite certain, it is a rocket, and most likely a SpaceX Falcon 9.
