A fast bright object suddenly appears in the camera during a ISS spacewalk. It is difficult to tell, but almost appears to be tumbling.

Probably a piece of Chinese satellite that broke off!

They're lucky to have even seen it.  Probably, one day, when it does get his they won't even see it coming.  It's just a question of time and the odds catch up.

Some say, there are cracks in the firmament - maybe it is a piece of firmament that broke off.  (TIC)

Does look as if it either tumbles or it is light refraction.. The most plausible explanation would be space-junk and most probably the Chinese crash-test-satellite  Alternatively a space burial gone wrong..

Nooo...that's why I said it was the White Knight. You can't see the BK unless the earth is in the background. :D
