It seems most likely that the controversial GOES-8 photograph that I put on the website last week, and that was the object of a half-hour discussion on Dreamland on January 24, is a picture of the moon. This is not entirely certain, but the image appears like other images that the satellite has taken of the moon, with the difference that there is some sort of interference pattern around the questioned image.
However, a GOES-10 photo has now been found that shows an object that is most definitely NOT the moon. But its appearance is ambiguous. It could be some sort of an artifact of signal interference, although this does not seem very likely. The artifact appears in the lower right quadrant of the photo.
