ScO McClelland in the cockpit of the Space Shuttle Columbia, 1992

[disinfo ed.'s note: there is some dispute over the credibility of McClelland. This is his website - judge for yourself.]

By Clark C. McClelland, former ScO, U.S. Space Shuttle Fleet, KSC, Florida 1958 to 1992 at Agoracosmopolitan.com:

Space Shuttle Columbia during STS-80 took a crew of five astronauts into a 17 day, 15 hour and 54 minute mission around the earth, the longest flight in the history of this vehicle. During this lengthy flight a very strange event occurred that even had crewman Dr. Story Musgrave unable to explain what he observed from the shuttle windows.

A large disc shaped object appeared below the Columbia. The shuttle was approximately, 190 Nautical miles high.

The disc was first observed to miraculously appear from out of nowhere, flying through the clouds below and progressing from right to left as the astronauts stared in utter amazement. The outer rim of the craft appeared to be rotating counter-clockwise. It was very large (compared to common space junk and breakaway ice), approximately 50 to 150 feet in diameter.

Astronaut Dr. Story Musgrave, a Payload Specialist on the STS-80 Mission, was interviewed following the flight. As he viewed a videotape of the incident which showed lightning flashes in the atmosphere, the city lights of Denver, Colorado and other earthbound sights, he stated: “I don’t know what it is. Whether it’s a washer, debris, ice particles, I don’t know. But it’s characteristic of the thousands of things which I’ve seen. What is not so characteristic is it appears to come from no where. You would think that if it’s facing the dark side or facing a side towards you which is not reflecting the sun, you would think that you would see something there. It’s really impressive.” …

    To sum up: The object was flying through the clouds. Clouds exist at a maximum height of 18km or about 9 nautical miles above sea level. The shuttle was cruising at 190 nautical miles.

    So they saw the object 150ft across from nearly 200 miles away.

    So either we’re talking magical space clouds at 200 miles or astronauts with eyes like the Hubble space telescope.

    I truly want to believe, but the stories never add up.

      There’s no need to believe in anything. The least helpful thing to do when looking into UFOs is to develop a belief about what they are.

      Have you seen the STS-80 footage? What did you make of it? Do you think NAZI / NASA purposely posted tampered footage of a non-event? Or did it happen?

    There’s this guy and there’s Edgar Mitchell too, who also seems a touch moonbat.

    Gordon Cooper on the other hand always struck me as sincere and with no real motive (at least, towards self promotion)

    This is why these people are crazy. Their crazy rants aren’t enough, they have to set up websites of the web 0.5 era (aka the myspace/geocities style). If you really feel the need to get your information out, why are you trying to post it on a webpage that looks like we live in 1995?

    The title of this article and the accompanying story are NOT related to each other.

    The quote direct from Musgrave confirms he sees stuff like this all the time and that is probably just debris. He even states that it must have been rolling/tumbling…as to appear suddenly once it started to reflect sunlight, thus ‘be visible’.

    To clarify the possibility of ufo’s, I’d like to share my experiences.

    During 2006 I experienced a list of unexplained events, now recorded. There was a projection of a being in my garden, which I captured on camera, and video. The being was walking out of the ground, it had pointed features, sharp teeth, blackend eyes, and a tongue that reached its naval. At the same time of the appearance I noticed that the trees and plants had grown into recognisable shapes, indicating a planned event. I also have footage of me performing magic, basically I threw objects and they were intercepted by an invisible force. I have since noticed a marking which has grown in the form of sunspots on my body. There were clouds forming shapes on camera. I have flown everywhere personally in pursuit of an answer, mabey that answer will still come.

    I tried too sell this information to specific agencies but they would not respond, probably because their encounters are fake. I believe my encounter is the only real event in the history of man kind and I probably will be setting up a website soon.

    regards
