A photo capture from a Google Earth shows how the video captured by the LIGO Hanford Observatory indicates the space junk's trajectory. The green line is the start of the video from the left side of the frame. The orange line is a place in the frame that has a building in the view. The red line is the center of the frame where the main leading object went dark. The small red polygons are radar hits suspected to be debris. The white line is the center debris line. Green arrows are confirmed locations. The big polygon is a wider search area. The heavier the object, the farther northeast the objects will have traveled, according to Mike Hankey.
