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 again. 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 related. William Listen to 'Strange Days...
