In a peculiar video added to the Live Video website sometime within the last day (see below), we see a purported UFO dodging in and out of a bank of clouds, remaining on camera for several minutes after a recent Space Shuttle launch.

Though little information is given along with the video, we know that this video must have been made near Kennedy Space Center on Merritt Island, Florida, since all shuttle missions launch from this site (this could also be assumed due to the palm trees seen in the footage as the camera zooms out). For it to be a recent launch, it most likely depicts the launch of the STS-126 mission, featuring Space Shuttle Endeavour, which launched on Friday, November 14th 2008. This mission was designed with the intention of the spacecraft delivering equipment required to increase the crew capacity of the International Space Station from three to six members, according to NASA.

But what of the strange object that appears in the footage after the shuttle departs? Is there anything else that can be discerned from the surroundings in this footage that might lend credence to the object being some known craft, or is it indeed something anomalous?
