In these pages dealing with the Total Solar Eclipse, I claim that it is the removal of a light source in the Ionosphere which results in a Black Disk in the sky. This implies that there may be an electrical point source, a large arc or spark in the Ionosphere, and this may be visible. We see this from the ground as an intense brilliant white light in front of the Sun. But what could this look like from space ?
I spent some time recording the Live Feed from The International Space Station. Many hours just watching and recording, not really knowing what to expect.
On 5th Jan 2017 I recorded 2 consecutive passes over the South China Sea. Below is a screenshot of an apparent light in the atmosphere.
