hellos,

My name is [Firstname] [Name], I'm 22 and a resident of Nice.

I write to you to report an 'anomaly'(let's call it that way)that I saw by chance on a space image from the ASTRONOMY PICTURE OF THE DAY website dating from April 23, 2007.

http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/archivepix.html

Whereas the soyuz shuttle approaches the ISS, it is possible to observe, very small, on the left, in the clouds, a shining point with a very light dark mass around it.

The shining point seems to be the reflexion of the sun on a surface, which would indicate that it is not a matter of a dust or a reflection. Moreover, at picture's real size, one does see well the dark and round aspect of the object.

It might be merely a satellite, but the distance compared to the Earth appears a little weak to me. Or then it could be unspecified junk. Or perhaps something else...

That's it, that's it...

The indicated image:

The indicated image is at http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap070423.html as of March 2008.

It is:

Note:

Taking into account the extremely low resolution of the object in question, it is impossible to distinguish if it is a stratospheric balloon, a satellite, or some closer junk, or somehting else.
