About this image

This is an out-take from a series of images taken of U Leo as part of the VSS campaign.  No idea which satellite it was but if anyone wishes to find out, please post here.  The varying brightness as it passes through the frame suggests that it may have been tumbling. Could it be a piece of debris, perhaps?
