    Good evening Ed,
    Here is a picture of the EF thermal cover similar to the one on Kibo (taken
    from the STS-127 press kit):
    It should be around 2 feet in diameter and was released at 17:42 UTC on July
    18 by the spacewalker Dave Wolf.

    I understand that another piece of ISS/STS-127 "debris" has been cataloged,
    namely 35634 = 98-067BR, described to be "Kibo thermal cover".  Does anyone
    have any clue as to how big this is?  E.g.
    is it bigger than a tool kit?
    Clear and dark skies!
