Filer’s Files – A National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration GOES satellite has photographed a large object orbiting the earth. The photograph was made by the automatic satellite from geosyncrhonous (stationary) orbit. The incident took place at 2:45PM on November 21, 1999. NOAA explained the object away as a “moon shadow,” but if so, it isn’t clear why such shadows cannot be found on other GOES photographs. Thanks to George Filer and Filer’s Files.
