Clipperton Island lies about 945 km (587 mi, 510 nmi) from Socorro island in the Revillagigedo archipelago, Mexico, the nearest land. The ring-shaped island has completely enclosed its lagoon for approximately a century and is 12 km in circumference. The lagoon has some deep basins (−43 m, −22 m) and one deep spot ("Trou-Sans-Fond", meaning bottomless hole) with acidic water (sulphuric acid) at the bottom and is stagnant. The lagoon is devoid of fish. Clipperton Rock, at 29 m, is the highest point. It is a volcanic outcrop located in the southeast.

Um, I think if that was a flying object the size of a state, someone else would have noticed it...
Besides, it looks like the sun's reflection anyway. It's going from East to West and there's a brightened area around it that continues onward which would be consistent with the timeframe that the sun would set over this part of America.
Cool loop though, neat to watch
