According to internal reports—confirmed by Dr. Story Musgrave, a Payload Specialist crew member aboard the STS-80 Mission—a disc-shaped object much larger than the orbiting American spacecraft suddenly appeared beneath the shuttle. At the time the Columbia was maintaining an altitude 190 nautical miles above Earth. Musgrave admitted that, although he got a good look at it, he wasn't able to identify the object. "I don't know what it is..I don't know...It appeared to [have] come from nowhere. 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." The disc-shaped object suddenly appeared, seemed to be intelligently controlled, changed its flight vector and—most unnerving of all—seemed to track the Columbia and her crew through space.
