The "Swarm" close up. In the video you will see many different sizes, though without a point reference it is hard to say an exact size or what distance each one is from the tether. Other figures have calculated then at up to a mile and a half in diameter. They travel at various speeds, in various dirrections, they pulse, they change luminosity. Some are brighter than others... the closer ones to the tether seem the brightest.

The Tether is 12 miles long, so this one passing just behind it gives you an indication of the size of the critter.

The large white one in the above sequence pulses as it moves across the screen then turns in an arc, finally moving straight down the screen.

The left one of the pair 45 degrees down from the tether on the right is the one in the above photos. You can clearly track its motion in the video
