Did NASA state that these were 'rings'? I guess that would cancel out the CCD saturation belief, then.
Hale said that the mysterious objects all probably came from the shuttle, and that his best guest is that one piece was probably an orange plastic filler placed in between the tiles that protect the shuttle from the blasting heat of re-entry. He said another object appeared to a garbage bag.
The other pieces were described by Jett as two rings and a piece of foil.
Hale said they were nothing to worry about: "Sorry, we're being a litterbug here."
I wonder if they have fottage of the debri from more than one camera at the same time?

ground control says: "Just confirming for the viewers at home, there is infact only one object in view at the moment, the 2 rings are camera artifacts or reflections"
atronaut: "ahh negative, we have a visual on three objects"
ground control: "......."

At approximately 16:30 p.m. (Central) on Tuesday, November 07, 2006, Federal authorities at O'Hare Airport received a report that approximately a dozen witnesses were observing a small, round disc-shaped object, metallic in appearance, which hovered over Gate C17 at that airport.
The first witness apprised the flight crew of Flight 446 of the existence of the object above their aircraft, and we believe both the pilot and copilot were witness to the bizarre object, as well. The witness also contacted his supervisors, who also witnessed the object, which was visible for approximately 2 minutes.
At the end of that time, the object was seen to suddenly accelerate straight up at a very rapid pace, and it "shot" through the solid overcast, which was at 1,900 feet at the time. The witness added that the object appeared to leave a "hole" in the clouds, where it had streaked upwards through the overcast.
