Consequently, Oberg said the discs passing behind the tether are an illusion blooming in an extreme environment. As for the sudden light flashes and streaks that Stubbs said are visible at some point on every mission, Oberg is less certain. "It's very interesting,'' he said. "Streaks probably occur when you're out there in the radiation belts.''
As he reviewed the voluminous mission tapes, Stubbs kept seeing orange streaking action, captured by payload bay cameras and interior cams as well. Freezing the images took some effort; Stubbs said they flashed at one-thirtieth of a second.
On one "Smoking Gun'' sequence, shuttle astronauts preparing to leave the orbiter for a spacewalk are clearly perplexed. The streaking is visible on tape:
"What was that flash?''
"I saw a light flash past me just here. Did you see it?''
"I thought it must've been me.'' Chuckle.
"I thought it was my imagination.''
"I saw it, too, so it's not. There (were) two of them. There's another one. What are they?''
"I thought I saw the lights flickering in here. Who'd be taking pictures?''
"What is this? It's just gone past in front of us.''
Stubbs said he didn't mean for the video title -- "The Secret NASA Transmissions'' -- to imply a coverup, or that the mission downlinks were surreptitiously channeled.
"The images were all readily available,'' he said. "But I think they have a double or hidden meaning. You don't see it unless make time to look at literally everything, like I've done. And then patterns emerge. It's like the O.J. trials, reasonable doubt versus a preponderance of evidence. To me, there's a preponderance of evidence that something very strange is going on.''
