The Day the Sky Flashed Twice: What Caused the Mysterious Vela Incident?



Subscribe to Dark Docs: http://bitly.com/DarkDocs
On September 22nd 1979, the sensors aboard the US Vela Satellite picked up a distinctive signal from somewhere in the vast expanse of the South Atlantic ocean. It was a mysterious “double flash” of blinding light. Even today no-one knows for sure what caused the Vela incident…

DarkDocs is a new narrated documentary video from Dark5 taking an in-depth look at at some of the most mysterious stories on Earth. This week: The Vela Incident. Pinpointed to within a 3,000 mile radius by the Vela 6911 satellite, the mysterious unexplained double flash of light was seen from space and likely emanated from near Bouvet Island between South Africa and Antarctica. The frozen isle is one of the most remote in the world and at the time was home to a Norwegian automated weather station. The only recent event of note was the 1964 discovery of a suspicious lifeboat of unknown origin that was laden with supplies.

  1. Just read about this in "The Second Nuclear Age" by Paul Bracken (Saint Martin's Griffin, New York 2013). There it is explained, as a fact, that it was a joint operation between SA and Israel, where the latter wanted to test a newly developed neutron bomb.

  2. The timeline coincides with the S.A. military's change of infantry weapons. They started using the IWI Galil. Uranium payments in return for guns and a remote location to test "the bomb" seems extremely plausible.

  3. Yes it was Israel testing a nuke with South African help but we now know that Taiwan had asked Israel for help developing nukes to be used should China think of invading. Pretty topical stuff.

  4. There are powers who like to play with their nuclear toys and pretend that nothing ocurred… Thanks to their nasty politics, we are like powerless to combat the threat and punish the hypocrates that poison the environment and will to enslave us all!!

  5. I remember riding with my Dad near Portales New Mexico when Paul Harvey reported the event. He said it was a South African shot and at that time everyone seemed in agreement.

  6. Hinting its aliens other than admiting our close and heavily militarily funded ally Israel developed a nuclear weapon is totally not obvious its a coverup for our buddy.
