This is what CNN is saying right now:
HOUSTON, Texas (AP) -- NASA postponed the return of space shuttle Atlantis for at least a day after a small, mysterious object apparently fell off the ship in orbit Tuesday and raised fears that the spacecraft might not be able to make the journey home.

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.
If that's a weather balloon, then NASA has been wasting a lot of time and money on rockets. They can send the astronauts into orbit in a balloon. Wonder why they never thought of that?
if its trackable by Norad then its a pretty big peice of the shuttle

It's not a weather balloon. Obviously, it's high altitude swamp gas. Or Venus.
Actually, to me it [the second picture] looked like a floating piece of cloth.
