I don't think that is a UFO- I think that is simply the normal gases that are encountered upon re-entry. They are extremely hot and basically the
job of the space shuttle is to deflect the heat with the tiles. Basically, the space shuttle turns into a controlled fireball during re-entry, what
we saw was most likely the beginning of it. However, as has been pointed out, the rest of the tape is supposedly destroyed- clearly a lie.
I found the little flirtation with the mirror kind of funny-- but for me, it seemed like the sequence was staged. It almost too perfectly
encapsulates that the astronauts didn't know what was going to happen. Makes me wonder what really happened to the shuttle.
