I had the same problems last night...

Well, I guess the reason is very simple..

In the dark there is no light  :))

When MIR is in earth shadow, what is currently the case when it is over 
Europe, there will be indeed no sunlight.  The pixels we saw are probably
stars or defects in the CCD sensor :)
