A water droplet?
Seems to be the moon, a water droplet just shows it coming from the other side.
Such flashes of light and color could be attributed to meteor impacts or perhaps some kind of gaseous emissions, but harder to explain are the "fastwalkers" that have been videotaped by several amateur observers. This one, from the Lunascan Project, is a capture from a video taken by an amateur Japanese astronomer several years ago.
FastWalker 2The dark object moved from north to south some unknown distance above the lunar surface. What could account for this anomaly? A satellite orbiting the moon? (It would have to be enormous to show up like this.) A satellite orbiting the Earth that happened to cross the the observer's field of view as he or she was videotaping the moon? (Steve Davis at Lunascan puts this idea in doubt, too.) So what could the unexplained object be?

The object you are talking about is not a water droplet or lens effect IMHO.

First of all, check your lens now. See any contamination on it? Maybe a water spot? you need to hold it up to a bright light source to get a good look.

I gotta admit that really looks like something orbiting the moon, any estimates as to how big it would have to be to be visible with that cam?

#1) If this is time lapse video at 1 minute intervals, why is the audio continuous?
#2) Given the horrible resolution and bitrate of that video, there is absolutely NO WAY to make any real determination of what, if anything, you are talking about.
