This topic and the video is highly misleading...
The objects in the video were spotted just below the shuttle, meaning, they were very small. They were NOT large alien space crafts or "UFOs". They were just fragments of something floating around below them. Also, they were not "orbs of light", they were objects that were reflecting sunlight.
UFO means "unidentified flying object", not "unidentified floating objects". These objects were not controlled, they were just floating below the shuttle like they just fell off.
The OPs video was taken out of context so gullible UFO "researchers" glued to YouTube would freak out.
The man at the end of the video was talking about space junk. They spot space junk all the time, and some of it is so small they never really figure out what it is, or exactly where it came from. Stuff falls off the shuttle all the time... and they never really know exactly where it comes from, or what it is, because it is usually too small to identify. Most of the time it is small pieces of the protective foam that lines the shuttle, and they have to examine the shuttle to find out where it came form and if it threatens their return to Earth.
Basically, this video is taken out of context, and when someone implants the idea that they are talking about "UFOs" you can actually see the video in an entirely different light. However, they are really talking about space junk.....
It amazes me at what lengths some UFO enthusiasts go to just to make a video that makes people go nuts.

So why would someone go about producing a video like that, purposefully missleading? It seems self defeating. If you are doing it to prove UFO's do exist and get debunked you have made things worse for your cause, surely?

Well this sighting coincides with all of the other triangular orb sightings, including mine. My guess: cloaked UFO?

PS - if I upload the video to YouTube, the YouTube compression erases the "UFO"edit on 14-9-2011 by hotrice because: (no reason given)

Makes me wonder if NASA is actually in the dark about more than we think or did this guy just slip up on TV?
