Subject: UFO sighting
Date: February 26, 2008
From: [name].[firstname]
Attachment: soyuzappr...big 3.jpg (1.58 MB)


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.

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 is at as of March 2008.

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.
