    Unfortunately my ISP is acting up yet again so I have had to use a third 
    party host for images of
    three passes from Sept 7 2007 a quick link  . The picture shows three passes , seen through 
    short breaks in the cloud.
    Lacrosse 4 , Envisat and an unknown.
    Each target has its own visual characteristic , from the bright gold of 
    Lacrosse to the distinctive shape of Envisat.
    The unknown followed a very similar orbit to L4  , although seemed a little 
    lower in orbital height.At a guess I would say that the bright area could 
    well be a radar array .
    The thumbnails are not to scale
    At the moment I can't find a good match for the unknown
