September 22, 1979: The South Atlantic Flash was detected by the U.S. Vela satellite near the Prince Edward Islands in the southern Indian Ocean. (I'm not sure why it's called the South Atlantic Flash.) The flash was thought to be the result of nuclear weapons test by either Israel or South Africa. Much information about the incident remains classified.
