This is very useful, Terry, and very intriguing. Thanks.

What it reveals is that the main rotating UAP (and the secondary
speck) shares the relative motion of the Earth backdrop, to
within the limits of easy measurement, travelling straight
across the corner of the frame at same angle as the ground
features (125-130 deg if North were at the top) but at about
half the angular rate.

I have to admit I don't see how to explain this as a reflection.
But a piece of debris from the Shuttle would not appear from
ahead of the Shuttle and fall astern; it would share the
momentum of the Shuttle and fuel tank. On the other hand if it
were a fragment of orbital debris of some sort from another
mission you would expect it to have at least some component of
motion across the Shuttle orbit, whereas this would appear to be
on an identical orbit at only slightly slower speed. That's
assuming it to be small and nearby of course. All in all, very
odd - but, motion aside, it still _looks_ like a reflection.
