As im sure you all know about the sats that monitor movment for incoming missles etc on the U.S, and that they are so sensetive they can detect a house fire....

well does anyone have any information on the 'fire walker', which is an object that was detected and tracked for 9 minutes....

this object entered the detection radius from outer space, entered close orbit and left orbit heading bacj into space...

I think you are referring to "Fast Walker's"?

"Fast Walker"

MAY 5, 1984, an alert was triggered at the North America Air Defense Command. Moving at 22,000 miles per hour, it was heading toward Earth and had been determined to NOT be incoming ballistic missiles, or any other type of conventionally explainable object. Once tracked, it was code-named "Fast Walker".

This object was first spotted by the ultra-sensitive orbiting USDSP satellites our county uses for detailed surveillance and air defense. These satellites have the infra-red capability to spot small heat sources on the surface of the earth and are time-proven as effective monitoring devices.

USDSP Satellite (depiction of ) reversal of course by "Fast Walker" as it headed back toward open space.

At 1400 hours zulu time, an object was spotted by a USDSP satellite and tracked as it sped first directly toward the Earth and passed if front and within 15 miles of the USDSP satellite. It suddenly and without impact or contact with other devices or obstructions curved outward, away from the Earth. It was tracked for another 9 minutes until it then disappeared.

What the data resolved was that it was a hot, fast, solid object that swept in from outer space. This information would probably have been totally kept from public view, but it was leaked to UFO Researcher Joe Stefula.

additional info

related USDSP Satellite info

was also discussed in this post (somewhat)

This has been covered on ATS before.

You might want to read the book "Out There" by Howard Blum (a NYTimes reporter... I think i misspelled his name). It includes a lot of info about ufos that norad has tracked.
