Okay ATS geeks, I need your help. Last night, around 11:30 pm, while watching the ISS live feed, something came into view I've never seen before. Whatever this thing is it looks to be on the ground (at least I think) and has a very distinct shape and color. At first I thought it might be artifacts but quickly dismissed that. There was no pixelation, the picture wasn't breaking up, just this 'object' panning smoothly from bottom left to the top middle of my screen. Realizing I only had seconds I immediately took 3 caps, then checked ISS Tracker to determine it's location. As best as I could tell it was either orbiting Mongolia, the southern part of Russia bordering Mongolia, or Kazakhstan (due to the feed's delay).

It's the object on the ground he's asking the question about. Given that this photo was taken from space that object must be a MASSIVE structure. Dont bother looking for it on Google earth because it'd be obscured from view from TPTB
