May 24, 1962 - Astronaut Scott Carpenter Snaps UFO In Space
M. Scott Carpenter duplicated Glenn's feat with an additional orbital flight lasting 4 hours 56 minutes and 5 seconds. Mercury-Atlas 7 was designated Aurora 7. During the flight, Carpenter took this photograph of a UFO which he saw close to his capsule.
This image was declassified, but has yet to be released publicly.
I contacted NASA's Still Photo/Video Librarian & Researcher, requesting this (and many) photos.
