NASA FOOTAGE: The NASA STS-75 mission ran a trial experimental tether that was to be used for towing and placing satellites into orbit. During this experiment they had a problem and the 12 mile long tether snapped due to the synthetic material accumulating a critical charge.
The shuttles cameras monitored the tether and its 100 million dollar satellite it was towing just drift away. This was all video taped live, and what was captured on this video is absolutely incredible. NASA claims the objects in the footage are ice particles very close to the camera and area passing in front of the far away tether.
There has been several debates about this footage. Some say it is Airy Disks, others say it is Ice Particles, and others say it is UFO's. I myself was very curious about the different video/camera anomalies so I searched for some information on Google, and came across a detailed analysis made by David Sereda. He provides a two part video that I found to be very informative. This video shows some of the incredible footage that allows many to make assumptions, and I just posted this with hopes to hear ideas from all sides of the world.
