At almost twice the length of Gemini 5, Commander Frank Borman's Gemini
7 mission may have been even more trying, but it grabbed the attention
of at least one Hollywood producer.

"Right after we got into orbit we were supposed to "station keep' or
fly formation with the booster," Borman says. "We were flying formation
and taking photographs and infrared measurements and I started calling
it a "bogey,' which is an old fighter pilot term. Well, a lot of the
UFO freaks on the ground picked this up and said we had seen a UFO
because we had referred to our booster as a bogey. Just this past year
I got a call from a producer at "Unsolved Mysteries" and they said, "We
read your account about your seeing a UFO on Gemini 7 and would you
come on the program?' I told them: "I'd love to come on your program
because I'd love to straighten that out.' I explained what it was I saw
and I said, "I don't think there were UFOs,' and the producer said,
"Well, I'm not sure we want you on the program.' "
