Did anyone else notice that about MET 41-43 minutes the camera shot from the
detached fuel tank showed one satellite arcing over and back down (behind the
tank as the camera was rear-facing) and later another CLOSE satellite miss...
one whose dish antenna could be seen clearly jus tbefore the video cut away?

There may have been some other noticable space debris but a) the tank was
moving pretty rapidly and b) there was enough noise on the video signal that
at times it as hard to discern between dropped video bits and visual debris.
