What is it?

What is the strange, slowly moving object visible in today's astronomy picture of the day? The frames were taken by ConCams on Mauna Kea and Haleakala in Hawii. The object takes quite a lot of time to pass over the camera position and seems to move in a straight line. That doesn't necessarily mean that the object was moving in a straight line due to the fisheye projection; only objects moving radially would follow straight lines and all others would move in curved ones. There is quite a lot of discussion - up to eight pages already - over at the NightSkyLive fora.
