This is certainly the kind of event that kooks and nutbags of all varieties have been waiting for. The object discussed in the video is reminiscent of the shadow that launched a million maniacs (aka: the Martian face)
At the time the "face" was first photographed it was taken by the gullible and those who like to make money off them as being an artifact of some Martian civilization right of out of Edgar Rice Burroughs' John Carter of Mars series. Sadly, it turned out to be a very unromantic collection of rocks, which is what the white speck in the video will probably turn out to be as well.
The good thing about the kind of silliness this sort of thing engenders is that it helps keep interest high in the space program and paves the way for the day when something really alien shows up.
Of course if that white dot in the video turns out to be some crashed starship from a galaxy far, far away, this post is going to make me look very bad...I think I'll take my chances.
