Hi Werner and List:

There is indeed a short 10-minunte (not half hour) production of
"UFOs" (mostly IFOs) filmed by astronauts in the Gemini and
Apollo missions. It's titled "Photo Aberrations, Debris & UFO's"
and it was put together at the Johnson Space Center in 1979.

I have it as well as an index card of all the film clips used,
and a mostly debunking text written by James Oberg explaining the
images (the film itself is silent with no narration or music).

Most of the images are undoubtedly IFOs (lensflares, space
debris, etc.) but a few are interesting, paricularly the last
image showing an oval, cloud-like objct right over the Moon,
listed in the NASA index card simply as, "Object above moon".

Many of these film clips have been used in countless TV shows,
usually without the IFO explanation.
