    Should this be June 11 UTC?-  the time and date of the email at 2257 UTC on 
    the 11th would suggest so.
    
    If so it coincides with the spacewalk.
    
    The thermal blanket has caused concern is not detached from the Shuttle.
    
    If it is in fact June 11 they were in the process of working on the Beta 
    Gimbal Assembly but not sure if this involved releasing anything from the 
    ISS.
    
    At the time of writing the record of this is shown in :
    
    http://www.spaceflightnow.com/shuttle/sts117/status.html
    
    though this is constantly updated so may not be there for long.
    
    Is it possible the "object" was in fact an astronaut?- I think mag is 
    similar to that reported from Suitsat?  If it was an astronaut then 
    congratulations!
