Guys, here's something that'll probably make you burn midnight oil! Here’s an image of the ISS. Do you notice anything strange here? Like something floating outside the ISS?



No? Ok, now check out this second pic which has been enhanced a trifle by adding contrast and brightness. Now do you see it?



Zoomed...



More....


I can't for the life of me figure out what that object is. Reflection from inside the Space Shuttle? ISS Module that's become unattached? Which one? Both seem improbable. The texture too is totally different from that of the ISS. UFO? So what do you guys think?

Perhaps it is the 'ghost of internal reflections in a view port window past'?

Seriously, a second or third stage jettisoned rocket motor...?

Besides from reflection or something else, it seems as if the whole ISS is cut and pasted into the scene here, I've brightened the contrast and the straight pixeled lines do not match the rest of the image.

a straightly lined lasso tool is being used for cutting the ISS into the original picture..

the green marker shows how it supposed to be, and the red marker shows cut and pasting to straight pixel lines..

That close to the ISS? It would've sent alarm bells ringing!!

Some say reflection. Possible, but the object's outline is too clearly defined to be a reflection from the bright insides of the shuttle.

Now why would NASA go to such lengths to cut and paste the ISS image on another background?

I agree. On first viewing of the picture I thought reflection. Then after looking a little more, I'm not so sure. Why copy and paste the ISS onto another background? They must know that people with an aquisitive mind will question everything they put out.
They seem to have just ignored whatever it is. Maybe it is something easily explained and we're all looking too much into it.

Nice catch.. Very strange

I tried enhancing it some.. looks artificial and almost organic.

Correct, you’re looking too much into into it.

You can see the sequence of photos HERE

It only shows up in one shot, despite the fact that there a several shots taken close together.

That third image in your link shows probably the same 'object' that has moved away toward the top left though this one isn't sharply defined. So I think this third image you linked is some sort of reflection. If it's a reflection then there's a lot of difference between this reflected image and the more defined image in the OP.

I really don't know, Maybe they didn't like the view?

There's to much sharpness and different shadow that shows a more three dimensional detail on the object than I would suspect from a reflection?

All things in a photo are 2D.

First I thought it was a piece of debris. But the more I look at it I can imagine some sort of dimensional rip. Either way it's really interesting.

Looks like the reflection of a camera/video camera attached to the window of the Shuttle.

Yellow rectangle around mounted camera.





See from 2:40 a camera being mounted on a window of Endeavour during 2016 mission.

NASA

Yeah, you're probably right.

a reply to: Chadwickus

Thanks, mate for them links, I shouldn't look deep into these photographs, you never know who's reflection shows up?

peekaboo

If it is a reflection, then why is it the only object from inside being reflected? It is clearly not dust, it looks mechanical and it looks earthly...so, what is it? I'm leaning toward a composite picture but no idea why it would be necessary.

Looks like an old fire hydrant.
