And why is it moving? Doesn't make very much sense to me, a moving antenna. Or is it kind of radar that is checking for dangerous objects? These are screen shots from this YouTube video.

    $\begingroup$ I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this should be asked on space.stackexchange.com $\endgroup$ – J. Chomel Jan 22 '18 at 10:56

    $\begingroup$ @J.Chomel oh no need to be sorry. SE sites often have some overlap, there aren't always well defined borders of on-topic-ness. In those cases it's generally up to the OP to decide if they'd like to move the question manually (copy paste text then delete in old location). In that case a helpful comment suggesting to the OP to move where they are more likely to get an answer usually comes first. Sometimes a moderator will decide to migrate also. But as users, we should vote to close for the standard reasons. In this case, I think simply the off-topic-ness reason is correct; not about Astronomy. $\endgroup$ – uhoh Jan 24 '18 at 2:58

That is RapidScat, described in this answer in the Space Exploration SE.
