I was just about to post this, saw on CNN
NASA engineers are checking into a baffling sight of a mystery object below the shuttle that mission control spotted at about 2:45 a.m EDT Tuesday
with a video camera in the shuttle's cargo bay.
The object, which circled the Earth in the same orbit as the shuttle and is of undetermined size, probably came out of the shuttle's cargo bay
because some jets had just been fired, shaking the orbiter, NASA spokesman Doug Peterson said.
"It's something that we didn't expect, but it's something that we're taking a real close look at," Peterson said.
