It's as Jim says, 'stuff'" likely ice, as the narrator also says, flying off the external tank. The external tank and shuttle had parted company anyway in the period of your concern. You can see even the wavy engine exhausts are still subject to air flow anyway.


It's even weirder to see this during night launches, as the engine plume shock wave hits the thin atmosphere and creates a circular rippling fiery shock wave around the tail, until shutdown. Then all the other plume effects are even starker in the dark as they glow from super-high molecular impact.


Sounds akin to small particles being heated to a plasma like state, as if all behind the exhaust becomes trapped there in some way.

Jim, I was just going to post "Ice," and read your other post on the link. I hope I never get to old to learn.
You, just be a little patient with us. Peace
