    I'm wondering if such unique parallel tracks might be caused by a family of
    debris objects from a singular fragmentation event, all still being in
    fairly similar orbits? This would explain the difference in brightness for
    each track (pieces of various sizes), and how they all show some offset to
    each other (moving camera/telescope while they keep passing by).
    Frankly, I'm not buying the idea that this is something atmospheric. Nature
    doesn't like being so nicely straight and parallel on such a scale. :)
    CU!	Markus
