A solar explosion took place several hours ago (on 6th of November) . gladly compiled an animated GIF with this explosion.

However, after having a second look I noticed an object at 10 o'clock (towards the end of the animation) . Can anyone confirm what that object is? It moves from left to right in an odd orbit. The animated GIF was taken over several hours so it cannot be disturbance from the solar explosion.

Here is the link:

Let me see if i can embed it:

(no i cant)

wow, moves quite fast as well ... could it possibly be another sattalite? it has to be close to the recording device... or REALLY fast (i think .. im no orbital master)

I do believe there was another thread on here about a meteor or something the same day.

Yes, i guess it is fast. The bright object on the right is a planet. But our "object" moves with an interesting pattern. I will try to find some other images.

I think, it is a meteor/comet affected by the suns gravity "explanation for the turning I see...
As far as the speed I think it is time altared, you can see other objects, stars and such move too. At a rate that is not the norm..

But who knows, deffinately interesting.....

patiently awaiting PHAGE...calling... PHAGE

He'll give us the hard truth!

Explains some of the things seen in the images.
There's also a planet transit list.

If you look at the planet compared to it, it is very fast, and it leaves a streak. I know it is not a planet. The most likely thing it is is probably a comet or meteor being pulled in by the sun. The movement is really weird though.

focusing on the object I at first ignored the explosion. The explosion itself is quite amazing to see.

As to the object, I have no idea. Is its rate of speed about the same as the stuff radiating out from the explosion on the sun? I will have to double check that.

What we are seeing is two separate cosmic ray strikes on the CCD. They appear only in the last two frames of the sequence.

Cosmic rays are very high energy particles which come from a variety of sources (e.g. solar flares, supernovae). They are of interest to lots of astronomers, but mostly just noise for us. We see lots of them in every image and occasionally, 3 or 4 of them hit the CCD in just the right places in consecutive images to fool us into believing there is a real object there.

Yes, it could be. Having the source of the animation would clarify the issue even better - however I was not able to locate any good resolution sources as in the animation.

I only looked here:

The animation is from the SOHO satellite, not STEREO. The browsing page is down at the moment.

Here are the two frames:

Here is the frame in between them:
