If it were something floating out in space I'd have to still say it's going to be pretty big. That object compared to a standing human would have to
be miles and miles high.
Actually if that were an actual object in space and not a lens artifact...
It looks to be about the size of a few earths.
So more that just a few miles high...
Considering the Sun is 1,392,000 kms in diameter.
The Earth being 12,756 kms in diameter.
That object looks enormous.
But watching the video, I don't see any direct effect to the CME around this object.
Almost like a boats wake in water, an object in the path of a CME would divert energy behind it.
Like splitting a wave of water, you would see a reaction or difference in the eruption.
I didn't see anything of the sort.
I'm gonna say its a lens artifact.
