Mystery in the Sky

In this small video clip taken from one of Genesis I's exterior cameras on March 3, a bright spot of some kind can be seen in the lower-middle portion of the images. The bright spot doesn't stay in the same position, neither does it correlate with the same locations above the Earth based on the cloud formations below. Each picture is separated by 20 to 30 seconds.

Care to make an educated guess on what the bright spot might be?

Looks like an artifact of lighting to me. If you look closely, you can also see a faint large halo that is clearly a lighting artifact appear and disappear more or less in concert with the spot. (Which to me, anyway, looked like a lighting artifact from the get go.

Looks like a flare to me too.
