Star Wars Over Australia
"NASA claimed they were ice crystals. We proved that it was physically impossible. Ice crystals couldn't change direction the way these objects could. We calculated that if they were ten miles away from the shuttle, the biggest went from zero to 2,500 mph (4,023 km/h) in one second..."
...said Professor Jack Kasher from the University of Nebraska, who worked with NASA scientists at the Mitchell Space Centre in Alabama and studied the controversial footage obtained from cameras, installed onboard the Discovery space shuttle.
bright UFOs are making manoeuvers...
An impressive UFO encounter was unintentionally captured on video cameras installed onboard the Discovery space shuttle. This bizarre incident occurred on 15th September 1991 and was recorded over Australia.
Between 20:30 and 20:45 Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), the TV camera located at the cargo bay of Space Shuttle Discovery took an extraordinary footage while the astronauts were busy with other tasks.
A strange, glowing object suddenly emerged below the horizon. It moved slowly from right to left and slightly upward.
The object was accompanied by several
other shining objects moving in various directions.
Then a flash of light occurred at what seemed to be the upper left of the screen (below image); and the main object, along with the others, abruptly changed direction and accelerated off into space 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.
Approximately 65 seconds after the main flash, the TV camera rotated down, showing a fuzzy picture of the side of the cargo bay. It was time to stop broadcasting.
Based on thoroughly conducted analysis of the video footage it was established that:
The distance from the Discovery shuttle to the Earth's horizon - 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 abruptly changed direction and accelerated 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 UFO was first picked up coming over the horizon when the shuttle was close to Lake Carnegie, WA. Then, the light flash and one contrail were tracked back to Exmouth Bay near the North West Cape military facility. A second contrail was tracked back to the Pine Gap military facility in central Australia.
The footage was distributed all over the world among UFO researches.
