After taking the images of the flyby probe and with entirely too much time on my hands, I manipulated, tweaked, refined, filtered and analyzed the object.
With really good software, like Photoshop, on zooming in, it can be seen that this thing is no balloon and has a structure unlike any flying contraption I’ve seen.
A dark, somewhat elongated tubular object zipped by the probe as the shots were taken and it was moving fast. Way too fast to be a bird or insect.
Submitted this image and several others to Peter Davenport at the National UFO Reporting Center.
