But I have to say against this. It is not easy to judge from movement any intelligibility. In fact, I always thought, human air science will have a huge leap when they could imitate the flexibility,manevour capacity of a flying insect. Especially there is one kind of flying insect which change its manevour in very limited space incredibly.
Of course I have no idea about this video, but when we consider flying, insects are muc much more intelligent than our dumb Boeings

Here is the original gif of from the observatory.
I think the UFO is an insect. Yes, insects can be seen in telescopes.
Nocturnal insect activity was observed through telescopes focused on the moon

I didn't notice the time lapse bit, so this makes the objects quick maneuver, not so quick now
If it was an insect is it possible it was crawling on the lens? Would it even show up on the lens?
I just don't see an insect flying around in such a small area and staying in the shot for a good 5 - 10 minutes (rough guesstimate), although it is possible.

While I think the idea is that the insect, if there is one, is in Earth's atmosphere, I am of the opinion that space itself is likely swarming with life.
Like our oceans.

Well, based on the focus to infinity of the telescope and the time lapse, this no longer seems to be an insect and therefore its unexplainable, and very interesting.
