It looks like it's a disc shaped object moving SE, and due to the camera is leaving a motion blur behind it.
This seems more plausible than the idea of the artifact being cigar-shaped.

Okay Ed so you think this photo might even be the full picture?. hmmm I had that same thought when i looked at the top left. but didn't know for sure. About the crater why then did they call this crater the damoieasu crater?
Below your photo is a group of 6 images of the crater: HySI on Chandrayaan-1: Crater Damoieasu E - Principal components - www.isro.org... But the quality of these 6 images when you click on them is useless.
Then I realized one thing, the name is misspelled! I was talking about Damoiseau and the Chandrayaan spelling is Damoieasu. Such a crater doesn't exist!
Google Images even asked me: "Did you mean: Damoiseau" So someone at isro.org has made a genuine mistake in naming this now-unknown crater!
On your website you feature a photo of a crater imaged by Chandrayaan: HySI on Chandrayaan-1: Crater Damoieasu Is Crater Damoieasu a new crater, and newly-named by your organization? Are you aware that there is a similarly-named crater: Daimoseau (see below for more info)? A search on google.com for your crater name brings up only 10 English pages indicating there is not much information about it. As a matter of fact, on google.com it asks: Did you mean: Crater Damoiseau A search for Crater Damoiseau on google.com brings up 3,610 results. Below I include information on who Crater Damoiseau was named after and I also include a link to a black and white photo of the crater taken in the mid-1960s. I will appreciate your reply. Cordially,
