Bugs can have shadows too.
Anything that is made of solid matter and is opaque will have a shadow.
A flying insect with the sun above it, will have a sun lit region on top, and a dark region under it (where the sun isn't shinning on it).
Now....if it had been CASTING a shadow on say, a structure below, that certainly would lend value to the idea that it was a much bigger object that was far away.
So yah: having a shadow only proves one thing: that light was hitting the top and not hitting the bottom, but it will in no way disprove that it was a bug.
10 Republican House members, many friendly to ULA, told NASA that SpaceX should not be leading the investigation and that authority should be turned over to the federal government.
