    Official video footage of Space Shuttle mission STS-8 (Challenger) from 1983 has a very curious glitch in it, at 3 minutes 32 in the video:

    A man's head, and other shapes, are very clearly seen:


    Most likely it's a reflection, given the way it overlays on the shuttle itself. But sure is an odd one.

    Anybody come across this before?

    it's a press conference video. The video is being narrated by the astronauts.

    so in order for the press to be viewing it, it probably would have to have been shown on some sort of monitor.

    But like you said, you can very clearly see the guy moving around, his image overlapping what's on the monitor.

    I know that makes most sense, but it seems extremely good quality for being filmed off a monitor - especially in 1983.

    Just had a quick flick through and couldn't find any other places of 'reflection' either.

    I'm seeing that too. this vid says
    and at 2:30 in the OP vid he describes what I think is the same view as
    and this vid has footage from another angle (although it looks like a NASA is fake channel) at 30 secs.
