The sequence of 10 images farther down the page show what could
be consecutive frames from the same video. If the time between
frames is constant and the assumed object is moving
perpendicular to the line of sight, then we can see with a ruler
that the velocity of the object is not constant. It accelerates
until the 6th frame, decelerates slightly, then accelerates

There is also a somewhat less obvious feature worth mentioning
in this sequence of ten frames. In the fourth frame from the
top, about three diameters above the bright speck, appears to be
an (another?) orb-shaped object. It is not in the preceding
frames, is still in the same place in the following frame, and
then it disappears.

Note that the orb-like feature first appears next to the bright
spot when it arrives at that location, then fades away after the
bright spot leaves. This suggests that the two anomalies may be
