Its impossible for it to be space debris, it would burn up in the earths atmosphere. Space debris doesnt follow the space shuttle around at 17,500 mph. It would have to have come from the space shuttle if its not a craft of some kind.

Looking at the photo's again, I'm going to guess weather balloon. I didn't think a weather balloon could get into space, but it does look like a folded translucent balloon.
