Why? Why is this more likely?
Not that I believe anything ... but I find this attitude out of place, for any scientific forum or anything science oriented.
Anything out of the ordinary should be investigated, not just brushed off as pixel errors ... which is just plain utter nonsense.
Even if it was "ion" that is effecting it ... it has a source for this, and the source is something that is out of the ordinary, unless you have a
general CCD error. In which case, it would hardly be a single error, it would probably be there all the time ...
and in case of "ionisation", if it was oversensitive for it ... it would be happening all over the image, not just in a single place ... a single
source this magnitude does not support your theory.
An error, is not an isolated incident ...
I say the OP is onto something, even if it is nothing ... it's exactly things like this that we should be looking for and investigating ...
