I've never seen anything like that on any film, photograph or video. I've been doing my own photography since i was 8yrs. old...
IMO, that is an actual object there. As the camera moves, you can see all the other lense flares/reflections moving across the screen as the cam moves, but the object stays perfectly still in the original position that the shot opened up at.
I am very hesitant to think or assume that it was anything to do with light/lense refraction... otherwise I would not have spent three hours trying to get that from the documentary and host it onto the net for others to see.
The Hyper HAD 1000 Imager has a high well capacity which elevates imaging capability at the upper extremity of light level - while the photosensors HAD technology dramatically lowers the dark current at the lower extremity. The combination of extending both boundaries endows this CCD with an unprecedented 600% effective dynamic range.
Sony's excellent techniques in CCD overload drain design provides superbly anti-blooming characteristics - even on the most severe of highlights. Total absence of blooming, comet-tailing, and image retention allow unprecedented new creative freedom in imaging - particularly in outdoor OB applications.
