I criticize some members that seem to hang out at YouTube looking for videos to then post here for comments. The reason I criticize is that a lot of
the videos that are pointed out have not only been posted here ad nauseum, but quite a few show objects that we, the more experienced, know they are
fakes, hoaxes and the result of CGI which result in non-supporting replies. I don't go to YouTube to fish.
However, once in a while I do see a video that I think could generate some interest and I've found one. Jim Oberg recently made a thread about space
flight STS-131 in which he wants to show us that some individuals cannot tell the difference between debris, ice particles, and associated space junk.
The individuals continue to want to believe that what they're seeing are UFOs. The more experienced members immediately realize that no, they're
not UFOs but the tyros don't want to have their UFO bubbles exploded.
One of the videos Jim supplies a link to shows a shuttle videographer tracking a spent external tank: "STS-131 - External Tank Handheld Video". I
did an extensive study of the video which resulted in my freezing 23 vidcaps showing some of the objects seen in this video.
But here is the reason for this thread. In one of my vidcaps, number 19, you see an immense object that at first looks like a 2-part island but you
quickly realize that it's not on the surface of earth but above the clouds! Strange looking thing with "protuberances"!
So, because of another thread I just looked at I went to YouTube and noticed another video. This video looks identical to STS-131, tracking a spent
external tank but an object is also seen "pacing" the external tank. It's a strange looking object which reminds me of the object seen in
Lookt at vidcaps #19-22, then view Jim's video (STS-131 ascent 'UFOs') at
then go to YouTube and see the video (Strange UFO filmed by accident) at
What are shuttle astronauts videotaping up there?
BTW, if someone here can identify the object in vidcaps #19-22 as an island and can supply corroborating images, I'll eat crow without shame. Just
cook it well done!
