I caught this object while making a time elapsed vid of the sun's ejecta on helieoviewer.org.
The object must be huge and moving fairly slow as this time elapse covers about a week or two.
The other shooting stars are a blur. It clearly has a tail, then gets spun around backwards.
Take a look, its near the end of the clip, the object shoots up from the five o'clock position.
If you are talking about the object near the top center of the video (at the end of the video), It looks to me like a comet. A comet's tail always
faces away from the sun, so as the comet moves, the tail will point in a different direction.
The tail will be IN FRONT OF a comet as the comet moves away from the sun.
I see other people beat me to posting the video, and calling it a comet. It's strange, because I thought there were only two posts in this thread
when I replied, but I see there are a bunch from yesterday. Either I was mistaken, or my web browser only showed half of the page...

On a side note, it's worth noting that any object with sufficient mass to gravitationally affect the planets would do more "damage" to the
stability of the planetary orbits if it was moving more slowly relative to any object that it passed. This is because the slower the flyby, the
more time there is for the object's gravity to act.
