Ok, guys, here's something that'll probably make you burn scarce 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 is the same but has been enlarged and enhanced by adding contrast and brightness. Now do you see it?
So the question is: WTF is it?
An ISS module just floating around? Which one? If it was, then why can't it be seen in the first photograph in normal mode? It's only when the image
is enhanced does this object show up. And then, are modules just dumped outside to float free which could be rather dangerous? Are shadows playing
tricks or is there more than meets the eye here?
And of course, it's impossible to tell the distance. Could be a few feet to a few miles. Anyway, here's the ISS as seen from the other side. No such
module (If it is one) can be seen here....
Or does the ISS have disposable trash cans too? This looks like one, anyway!
But seriously, can the experts out here hazard a guess as to what this object might be? A satellite? But that argument ain’t an option as there
needs to be minimum separation between space objects and the ISS. And no free floating junk that size can come so close. Space debris? The usual
Or…..an alien space craft?? Damned if I know!
