If we're talking about the color photograph and not the infrared image, I have a questions:
1) Is there anything in the photo that indicates these objects are anywhere close to the rings of Saturn? I'm not sure there is?
If you're taking a photo of something a great distance away at a certain exposure and something closer to the lens passes through your frame, the
object is going to appear altered. If it's a space object following a trajectory, it will appear to be elongated as it has been exposed longer than
it would if you were intending to specifically photograph that object.
If that's the case, it probably explains this straight little anomoly right here:
Also, if I'm correct about the elongated form due to overexposure and you look closely at the end of the object, it is fairly irregular
looking.....and looks very much like an asteroid in shape and color. The "middle" section looks like the end stretched out and spinning a bit.
I think the photo would be infinitely more compelling if these objects were a shiny metallic/gun-metal color as is commonly cited in UFO reports.
