What is this?

There's an image attached at the end of this post. What do you think this might be? (If you already know from elsewhere what this is, please don't give it away.)

That's easy. It is a Klingon Bird of Prey coming out of cloaking.

SaabFan: How far away does a Klingon Bird of Prey decloak to commence an attack? If the answer is about 90 km/60 miles, then you may be on to something.

EJ123: Yes, it is a flying object, as yet unidentified by you.

I don't know but I've been trying to find a screen capture of the out of focus bunny and baby from Honey I Blew up the kid for the last 30 minutes.

I don't know why, but I seemed to think that it would add something meaningful to this thread. Since I can't find the capture, my assistance is no longer required.

Carry on.

Two hints, that may or may not be very helpful:

(1) As alluded to earlier, the pic was taken by a camera about 90 km/60 miles away from the subject. Exposure time well under one second.

(2) The picture was taken in April 2005.

I won't google the date. Did some space station drop from orbit then? Or the shuttle that burned up on re-entry?

Sorry, cooker, nothing having to do with the ISS or the shuttle. No disaster of any sort.

And chairman LMAO, I didn't steal your medical records.

It's man-made, all right. The weight of this vehicle (ex-fuel) is about 375 kg, or a bit over 800 lbs.
