CCD imagers are struck by cosmic rays, gamma rays, energetic particles from the sun, etc. all the time. Thats what this looks like. You can see the impact across two cells (bright spots) and then the ricochet and branch off to the right. It is instantaneous and momentary and gone, just like expected. Be glad it didn't hit your bones...

“The streaks in question are consistent with energetic particle (proton) impacts on the CCD, something which is apparent in just about every image,” Rich told Life’s Little Mysteries.
“Notably,” he added, “these artifacts do not persist from image to image,” â€” proving they are momentary blips in the camera sensor rather than an actual object in the field of view. Some images taken by the Lasco 2 camera are swarming with artifacts, caused by particles zipping across the CCD in every direction.
As a cosmic ray passes through a camera’s image sensor, it deposits a large amount of its electric charge in the pixels that it penetrates. If the particle passes through at a shallow angle to the plane of the camera, it affects several pixels along its path. The result is a bright streak on the image.

I don't think it's a tether incident only because the same exact ship or whatever it is, showed up in the previous month on the quadrant III of (x,y), then it shows up on the y Axis of the quadrants I base line.
impossible and improbable.
Ship or whatever it is
