Hi AL, Marco and List,
Thanks for the video link, AL.
The shown video clip lasted 33 seconds, on a reproduction velocity of 1.0
It was interesting to notice that, quite close to the 4th second of the
video clip, there is a brief, sudden bright outburst (?) followed by a
return to its initial visual brightness; also visible during a portion of
the object's path, are two parallel darkish streaks (shadow lines?), one on
each side and quite close to the object.
Perhaps an imaging "blemish"?
