I didn't say that 'one or two streaks' were 'photons being bent by gravity'. I proposed that all the streaks were cosmic rays, some of which are indeed photons, striking the CCD.
Dunno about your meteor theory spikey. For those to be meteors w/ tails & all, the satellite would have had to have taken that shot from within our atmosphere for the tails to be visible.
I'm still thinking we're seeing cosmic rays or solar wind/charged particles.
A stream of solar wind flowing from this coronal hole is expected to reach Earth on April 30th-May 1st.
Check out this animation.

Looks like whatever these are, they're are there, and not an optical aberration...my opinion only.
