Out There

First NASA says 'ground light' then 'star.' Are the astronauts looking up or down? That they don't say.

When Whitley Strieber showed some video from Shuttle Mission STS-80 to a NASA representative, he said 'I don't see anything there that looks like a UFO." Yeah, right. Now another unexplainable object appears, and they're confused. Is it in the sky or on the ground? Wake up, NASA. (Never happen...)

Not sure why this video is even posted: there's actually no indication that the lights are anything other than either ground lights or stars, depending on the relative trajectories of the satellite and the orbiter. I'd imagine it'd be easy to loose track of where the horizon is while in the Earth's shadow.

Why would NASA take interest and film ground lights? And if this isn't some strange light then what is it? NASA never says what something is but they go on and on trying to convince everyone something ISN'T an unidentified light!!! Still the question remains - why would they film lights like this if they know exactly what they are? This is very much like the explanation during the Roswell incident. Why do you need child sized coffins for test dummies?

I think you've misinterpreted what's going on in the video: The two light-blobs that are present in-frame for the duration of the video is the PAMS module, of which Endeavour was required to trail and film, as we see here. When Runco mentions ground lights and stars (01:18), he's talking about the lights that come into frame briefly at a few points in the video, traveling from bottom to top.
