Unknown Object

    A "double star" appears near the top of the first frame. Since it only appeared in 1 frame I marked it as an artifact rather than an asteroid. I suspect it is some other type of object.

    That looks like a some sort of cosmic ray hit. It's very sharp - so only a few pixels were strongly affected. However, it is unusual to see non-contiguous pixels hit by the same event. Curious effect.
