    The Vela Incident (sometimes known as the South Atlantic Flash) was the possible detection of a nuclear weapon test by an American Vela satellite on September 22, 1979. Much of the information about the event is still classified.

    I was chatting with a South African friend last night and this came up in conversation. Interestingly, he told me that this is common knowledge in SA and people are quite open about its occurence.
