Interesting footage OP.

There seems to be some optical misconceptions in this thread.
This camera is not a human eye.
The lens angular, zoom, and focus information could be readily available.
Even so, it would require optical, mathematical, and orbital expertise beyond most to interpret the actual apparent size and positioning of objects in space, with such a lens, outside of normal Earth atmosphere.
In addition, if this camera is hard mounted to the car, then any relative motion by the car, could appear to show that stationary objects in the background are the objects moving.
Our position of perspective is important to consider.
If the camera and car don't move relative to each other, but the car is twisting in space, then background objects will appear to be the moving objects, whether they are stationary or not.
I am not an expert on these optical phenomena, but I am wise enough to know that these are variables which must be accounted for.
Alone, I can neither credit, nor discredit the findings posted here.
However, both sides of the argument should be willing to accept that there is some discernible thought and logic put into the consideration from the other side.
I'd love to believe in widespread alien contact and willy nilly UFO travel in our solar system.
I must be willing to rule out conventional explanations with as much scrutiny as I apply, in my search for these incredible events.
Please consider all possibilities, before you bet the farm.
This mosaic shows images of the Earth and Moon acquired by the NEAR spacecraft 19 hours after its flyby of 23 December 1998 at 07:23 UT. The images were taken through three filters at a distance of 400,000 km from both bodies, looking up towards the south poles. The Earth is 12,756 km in diameter and the Moon's diameter is 3475 km. Antartica is clearly visible at the center of the Earth's disk, with Australia at about 1:00. The Moon is shown 5 times brighter and 10 times closer to Earth in this image.

The Earth-moon photo you published has this caption.
PHOTO CAPTION GALILEO
December 22, 1992 P-41508
TOP GLL/EM2 3
Eight days after its encounter with the Earth, the Galileo
spacecraft was able to look back and capture this remarkable view
of the Moon in orbit about the Earth, taken from a distance of
about 6.2 million kilometers (3.9 million miles), on December 16.
I direct your attention to the phrase "taken from a distance of
about 6.2 million kilometers (3.9 million miles".
Why do you think I urge you to think about its implications?

All I can say is that this guy must have lots of time on his hands, him and people who look for funny shaped rocks on the moon.
How about it being a satellite that is rotating and it has particular reflective surfaces. So if it had 3 reflections somewhere, it would give 3 flashes every rotation.
Also, just think if you saw that flashing UFO from your backyard -- you'd think it was an airplane. You'd never think it was a satellite because that's really not what they look like. It's what airplanes look like.
