Analysis of video from Space Shuttle mission STS-80 provides new insight into a number of
unusual events captured by a camera aboard the space shuttle Columbia in 1996. Three
different phenomena are analyzed: l) two slow moving circular objects, 2) a number of fast
moving objects in space near the shuttle, and 3) a strange luminous apparition near the
earth's surface. The two slow moving circular objects have attracted a great deal of popular
interest due to their disk-like shape. One seems to appear out of a cloud layer, the other
moves into the camera's field of view. It is argued that both are likely to be pieces of shuttle
debris emerging from the spacecraft's shadow.
