    if you have a look in frame 3, at the top left edge, a bright blob appears but only in thats frame, is there any corrisponding sets in this series to have a lok at and compare with please????

    There are no tools that I know of that let us look at other nearby sets, but we do know that these sets come from a larger image and that the sets overlap enough so that there should be one that is getting more of the upper left corner. Because of its location, it could possibly be a very close retrograde asteroid moving fight to left only being in frame 3, but I have rarely seen asteroid move that fast. If it is, however, it should be more apparent to those reviewing other sets where it might be able to be seen in additional set.

    Otherwise, this is likely just a single frame artifact, like a cosmic ray or other electronic noise in just that frame.
