    What the heck is this thing? Some sort of lens flare that jumps around?

    This is just a regular camera/telescope optics artifact. It jumps around due to telescope dithering, i.e. the telescopes is pointed slightly off for each frame so that artifacts are made to appear to move in this hectic manner which makes them very easy to distinguish from real objects which moves linearly, i.e. from #1 to #4 in the same direction, with the same apparent speed (distance traveled) between each image.

    I marked that as an asteroid,but it's more likely a Go'auld ship hahhaha 😄 Just joking. Probably a nasty artifact.Some kind of reflection.
