Is the flash at 7 sec what is thought of to be lightning?
Second, the optical appearance of RCS jet firings is well known
and familiar to experienced observers, and they look just like
the flash in question. These have been observed and videotaped on
every shuttle mission, from the crew cabin, from payload bay and
RMS cameras, and from cameras on nearby free-flying satellites,
and from ground optical tracking cameras as well.

Seen this before. On a documentary, the official explanation was its Shuttle rubbish thats turned to ice then when its entered the atmosphere it just evaporated and shot off out to space lol.
For those of you that never seen a meteoroid enter the Earth's atmosphere
allow my to begin by saying there are many different consequences during
the transformation of a meteoroid into a meteor. Some enter at a shallow
angle, that is to say they contact the surface of the atmosphere almost
parallel to it. In effect they skip across thin high altitude gases not
unlike a flat stone on the surface of a pond. These tend not to be
brilliant. They appear as thin white lines about the brightness of a
minor star. They are short lived and gone in an instant. Some meteoroids
come in at a slightly steeper angle. These penetrate deeper into the
atmosphere but bounce back into space before they really have a chance to
damage them selves. These also tend not to be so spectacular. They do how
ever heat the gases that they rub against leaving a short-lived glowing
EVENT 2 (9-15-91 / between 20:30 - 20:45 GMT)
Note: The official NASA explanation for this event is that ice crystals are being propelled by a shuttle attitude thruster being fired. The fact that the Earth does not appear to shift in the frame indicates that the shuttle's attitude is not changed and therefore, no thruster is being fired during this event.
