Gemini 11 UFO Sighting - September 13, 1966
Gemini 11 - UFO Sighting
On September 13, 1966 during their sixteenth revolution, the Gemini 11 Astronauts, Charles "Pete" Conrad and Richard Gordon, Jr., sighted an object which they could not identify.
FROM THE TRANSCRIPT OF GEMINI-11, TAPE 133., PAGE 1 (SEPTEMBER 13, 1966):
"WE HAD A WINGMAN FLYING WING ON US GOING INTO SUNSET HERE OFF TO MY LEFT. A
LARGE OBJECT THAT WAS TUMBLING AT ABOUT 1 REV. PER SECOND, AND WE FLEW . . .
WE HAD HIM IN SIGHT, I SAY FAIRLY CLOSE TO US. I DON'T KNOW. IT COULD DEPEND
ON HOW BIG HE IS AND I GUESS HE COULD HAVE BEEN ANYTHING FROM OUR ELSS* TO
SOMETHING ELSE. WE TOOK PICTURES OF IT."

I think in that image where they airbrushed out the UFO, it could have actually been caused by the clouds/ice of the earth, relecting off of the camera lens, and that is reflecting off of the window and being picked up in the camera.
That sounds really drawn out, but when I think about it it makes pretty good sense.
The white object near the right edge of the photo is one of hundreds of pieces of space junk associated with the disconnection of the Apollo spacecraft from the Saturn V rocket and the removal of the Lunar Module from the Saturn's S-IVB stage. The free-floating object is out of focus, indicating it is within three-meters of the camera's lens. This photo was taken with A handheld Hasselblad camera, using SO-368 colour 70mm film.

There's no such thing as a NASA UFO
I guess there's no such thing as flaws in photographs either.
I wonder what sort of UFO this is.
My god. It's full of stars...or something

There is as yet no conclusion. One can try to be more accurate measuring the photos and perhaps get a better estimate of the angle between straight ahead and the Agena antenna to make theta 1 and theta 2 precise.
"Do you have something from NASA to that effect?"
I like Rod as much as anyone but I've seen so many videos (probably including that one) that my eyes glaze over. I don't consider shows like that to be sources.
Anyway. It seems that it is a blowup from 54660 (flipped).
There's a tracing of a 100x blowup in Maccabee's analysis. Also one from 54661.
It seems to have been an irregularly shaped object, tumbling as described by Conrad.
