I'm pretty sure this is nothing, but I can't come up with a good explanation for the weird change in direction at the 26th minute mark in the video.
I had to wait for the stream to end to see it properly, so now that I've done this, I'm thinking about a small particle of debris that was blown at the last moment out of the camera view from some sort of exhaust, or lens flare/lighting effect (one could notice the lighting on a few of the visible details .
um, whats your point? if anything that only makes it even more unlikely a path change could be due to rocket exhaust, such an event would cause a sudden sharp change in path, not slow arching turns, slow arching turns are more in line with intelligent pathing control.

In space, above the atmosphere, a rocket's blast must be directly upon the impacted object. Not like, say, a car whizzing by you as you stand by the road and feel the deflected wind. In space the particles from the exhaust MUST impact upon the object to cause it to lose its former motion.
