Unusual object docked on International Space Station

The object being commented on here by Dr. Michael Salla on Coast to Coast AM could be a discharge from the space station itself, or it could be something docked on it, either a secret craft of ours or something from another world. If it is a ship of some kind, its aerodynamic shape would suggest that it is intended to enter the atmosphere.

The Russian robotic spacecraft Progress 54 docked with the ISS on Feb. 5, 2014. If the timelines correspond, the mystery is likely solved. (Gave me a better kick this morning than my cup of coffee, though!)

I agree mtngoat, that does appear to be a Progress spacecraft docked at ISS. But I don't know what that teardrop shaped object extending from the docking coupler is.

They'll probably say it's a weather balloon.

I couldn't find a photo of the Progress 54, so I didn't know what I was looking at. Sorry!

The teardrop shape is not part of the Progress? OK - adrenaline kick back on! Very interesting!

Here's a good picture from wikipedia of an earlier Progress for comparison.
