I'm airline pilot.

Last December, 22th I was flying early morning from Tenerife South (Canary islands) to Alicante (Spain).

From the plane I only saw a nice starshine, and then I took a digital photo.

Now in the computer, I see a point and making it greater, I appreciate something like a space station?
Is it?…

((NUFORC Note: We have looked at the photograph, forwarded by the witness, and we cannot identify the object. It looks somewhat like the trail behind a rocket that is often seen at high altitude, but we are not aware of any missile launch on this date. The squiggly nature of the object raises the question of whether it might be a light reflected off the inside surface of a cockpit window, but that is only a possibility that would have to be investigated. We do not know what the object is. PD))
