kk... before I go belching off Is the footage that we all have seen so many times THE actual footage. Is it straight from Nasa's cams and haven't been through the hands of some regular Joe before it was put on the net?
I agree there are a lot of strange things (or "things I can't explain myself" is probably better to say) but then last night I kinda by chance saw something. Something very down to Earth...
this is the link for the tether video... fast forward to 4:48
Youtube Tether video
Now this is a photo I took with my camera phone yesterday:
(if link doesn't work use this manually... my ATS uploads' links never seem to work):
they look pretty similar don't they? I could probably make em even more similar had I tried hard for 2 more secs.
My photo is actually just a cd that's reflecting ceiling light onto a near by wall / closet. Was easy to do, just had to tilt and shift the cd till I thought I had the right shape and all.
So, I just thought that maybe just maybe some of those images from the tether video has been edited?
That's my 2 pence for today. Cherio...
Ps. sorry if you already have been over the cd theory
edit: selfpun... yes, the guy must have been using a hell of a lot cds

It is a great watch,
He explaines everything uberclear, and maybe a little too clear, (he mentions the objects getting past the thether like 20 + times LOL)
But really, for me, it disclosed it.

OK, I will try to explain.
I always thought that they could be out of focus objects near the camera, but I could not be sure, so I tried to reproduce the situation, but with obvious limitations. I could not have an object with the size and shape of the tether at a distance of some tens of miles or even 100 miles, I could not have ice crystals floating around me and I could not have access to the camera used.
Instead I used a light source strongly out of focus and a string with a light shining on it (but not as far as I wanted) in a dark room. The image bellow is one frame of the video I made.
As you can see at the bottom of the circular shape, it is difficult to know just by looking at the image if the string is behind or in front of the circular shape, and it may even look like the string is casting a shadow on the red circle, but that was not the case. The red circle was a LED from my Pocket PC that was being held near the camera and the string was more or less one metre behind.
I know that this proves nothing, but it shows that an out of focus small object can appear to be behind another object when in fact it is in front and much closer.
