Description of Events
On September 15, 1991, between 20:30 and 20:45 Greenwich Mean Time, the
TV camera located at the back of Space Shuttle Discovery’s cargo bay was
trained on the Earth’s horizon while the astronauts were occupied with
other tasks. A glowing object suddenly appeared just below the horizon
and "slowly" moved from right to left and slightly upward in the
picture. Several other glowing objects had been visible before this, and
had been moving in various directions. Then a flash of light occurred at
what seemed to be the lower left of the screen; and the main object,
along with the others, changed direction and accelerated away sharply,
as if in response to the flash. Shortly thereafter a streak of light
moved through the region vacated by the main object, and then another
streak moved through the right of the screen, where two of the other
objects had been. Roughly 65 seconds after the main flash, the TV camera
rotated down, showing a fuzzy picture of the side of the cargo bay. It
then refocused, turned toward the front of the cargo bay, and stopped

One of the most spectacular video footages of a UFO encounter was taken
by cameras on board the Discovery space shuttle on 15 September, 1991.
The video sequence was picked up live by a number of amateurs who were
directly monitoring the transmissions. The material has been shown in
news broadcasts and circulated amongst UFO researchers worldwide.
The video shows several
small bright objects maneuvering on screen, apparently interacting with
one another in a complex fashion. Skeptics have usually insisted these
are merely shots of some of the many small ice particles which
inevitably end up in orbit with every space shuttle.
UFO investigators were quick to dispute this interpretation, and US
Richard C. Hoagland soon conclusively demonstrated the objects
were actually large-sized and many hundreds of kilometers away from the
One UFO in particular appears to rise up from below the Earth’s dawn
horizon and can be clearly seen emerging from behind the atmosphere and
the ’airglow’ layers. It is certainly in orbit around the Earth, some
distance out in space, and traveling quickly.
A sudden, bright flash of light is then seen to the left of the picture,
below the shuttle. The UFO then turns at a sharp angle and heads out
into space at very high speed. Two thin beams of light (or possibly
condensation trails) move rapidly up from the Earth’s surface towards
where the UFO would have been if it had continued in its original orbit.
Subsequently, careful analysis of the video shows that:
The distance from the
Discovery to the Earth’s horizon is 2,757 kilometers
The UFO’s speed before
accelerating into space is 87,000 kph (Mach 73)
Three seconds after the
light flash, the UFO changes direction sharply and accelerates off
into space at 340,000 kph (Mach 285) within 2.2 seconds
Such an acceleration
would produce 14,000 g of force (1g is normal Earth gravity)
The light flash and light
beams (or contrails) that shoot into space have variously been described
as a ground-based attempt to disrupt or destroy the UFO. Hoagland
interprets the incident captured by the Discovery’s videocamera more
specifically as a "Star Wars" weapons test against a Star Wars drone
(the UFO). Other UFO investigators prefer to describe it as a Star Wars
attempt against an extraterrestrial UFO. Whichever version you prefer,
the technology implied is most certainly impressive - at least of Star
More recently, from New Zealand, investigators have reviewed the video
and corrected the actual time it was taken. They have found that the UFO
incident was recorded over Australia and not the Philippine islands as
was originally thought. Discovery’s trajectory had already taken it
across Surabaya in Java and above the Simpson Desert, Western Australia.
The UFO is first picked up coming over the horizon when the shuttle is
close to Lake Carnegie, WA. Later, the light flash and one contrail can
be tracked back to Exmouth Bay near the North West Cape military
facility. A second contrail can be tracked back to the Pine Gap military
facility in central Australia.
US investigators have been asking their Australian counterparts to
provide further information which they don’t have and which they
probably can’t get. All the information we have on this incident so far
comes from the US or New Zealand. And, of course, there are Australia’s
stringent secrecy laws to contend with.
The scenario was probably captured on video purely by chance. Along with
other UFO incidents recorded on video by NASA, this material has
contributed significantly towards NASA’s recent decision to
live television transmissions from space.
