    The appear to be single frame artifacts, like cosmic ray strikes or electronic noise in the camera.

    Unlike the asteroid that is a bit up and to the right of those artifacts (moving up and to the right itself), the artifacts do not show up in frames 2 through 4. Sometimes they do, and you can tell that they are artifacts in that they will move in a non-linear pattern (often up, down & right, then left).

    Do you remember if this was a known asteroid (it would have told you when you submitted the image).
