(Gather)   NASA seems to have been covering up what looked like a UFO from the last shuttle mission. It happened during their live, public feed. They blamed it on lens flare. They weren't saying it was aliens. But it was aliens   (news.gather.com) divider line 187

They act independently, yet always maintain equidistant juxtaposition from each other.

It asks anyone watching to distrust their own eyes.

The human senses are remarkably easy to fool. The more we use science to determine what's actually real, the more we realize our own bodies are prone to fooling us in all kinds of ways.

For instance, my body has fooled me in to believing any of you will read this post and take it to heart, while science has proven otherwise.

She does sound sexy!

But as I said before, you can't trust your senses. She's from Houston, so the odds of her being a sweaty she-beast is rather high.

My guess is space junk.

Either that or three street lights.

They sure spend an inordinate amount of time communicating with mission control that they do see the objects.

The reflection from the foil explanation doesn't make sense as the objects move away from each other while the camera remains motionless. When the camera moves to shoot the Earth briefly, the objects move out of frame as you'd expect from actual objects.

That they removed the initial reaction audio right after these come into view is interesting.

lens flare?


I don't see the problem, that movie accurately showed the dangers not having enough radiation shielding causing random particles to excite the eye which causes astronauts to see spots.

Streetlights out in space? You can't explain that!

Anyway, I came here for the orange-skinned greek guy with the crazy hair. He never fails to make me laugh.

I was thinking the same thing - why did the go with lens flair - how stupid is that? just go with space debris or ice from the shuttle pee disposal system

It is interesting that the woman commentator said that Houston was originally controlling the camera and the crew took over to look at something they were seeing through the shuttle windows. If that's the case, it wasn't just something hinky with the camera.

If I was prone to cover-up conspiracy theories I'd be suspicious of the statement at the end of the video, when the guy in Houston came on to tell the crew to return the (streaming) camera to monitoring the inspection and to instead use still cameras to document the objects.

So if aliens did drop in on us and grant us Intergalactic technology, would the human race still be dickbags or would we quickly resolve our differences.


I want to believe there are four lights!

Isn't lens flare always observable from the flight deck windows?

Someone on the crew did ask Houston how close the shuttle was to the trajectory of something (unintelligible) and Houston said they were checking, so they did have something in mind. I wish I could have made out that one word though, because I don't know what they might have thought they were near that they'd describe as foil.
 
2012-04-09 08:30:18 AM
I don't think that's lens flare unless this camera is some HD wideangle and the movements we think are camera movements are actually sensor crops panning around. Looks like actual objects, but it's a large leap from physical objects to physical spacecraft piloted by extraterrestrials. I don't think that can be extrapolated from dots.
As far as them forming a triangle, try choosing three points distributed at random that DON'T form a triangle.

Am I going to have to be the one to point out that this video is from STS-115 in 2006? It's neither the last shuttle mission nor the last mission for Atlantis.

it just something on the window. i heard that before somewhere...

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Agree 100%. Having worked in brokerage taking 100s of calls a day, you can never trust the sexy sounding clerk on the other end is what you envision...

Seriously, videos of UFOs in space are in the lamest category of the whole UFO saga.

Boring as fark.

Aliens, ffs, and it's like looking at paint drying. Next!

The last episode of Ancient aliens was the most mental ever. Leonardo Da Vinci = Aliens in his paintings; inventions from alien sources etc. At least that was so bizarre as to make me go 'WhutDaFark?!!'

'Could Leonardo Da Vinci be a messenger for aliens? And the answer is an absolute, 'YES!'

Pretty cool UFO video better. Even better with the NASA Jedi mind trick. Waves hand, "These are not the UFO's."
 
2012-04-09 08:35:23 AM
6:09 or so

"There are three objects. The one you see you see two rings right there they're the ones we kinda had the late tally-ho on, the one down the bottom that's the one we initially saw that appeared to be foil. So we've got like two rings and a piece of foil. The piece foil seems to be further in front with a grounding strap on it seems to be further in front of other two and the other two seem to be about the same equidistant from both us and the forward one."

Space junk.

Every time I see this kind of headline being used, I think of the douche director from "Amongst Friends" saying "I am not saying that I killed someone but I am not saying that I haven't, either." so his Vanilla-Ice-Meets-Tarantino blandfest would be seen as authentic. HTH the discussion going on.

Now try this. Take any two points.

They are equidistant from each other.

ANY TWO POINTS AT ALL IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE.
