UT 10.45....29th SEPT 2019.

 

The camera is facing SW.

 

The object came in just north of the Gold Coast. Australia.

 

It was overcast with light rain so no chance to see it.

SO youve  an image of a bolide taken when it was overcast, so 'no chance to see it'? So how did you image it? Confused.

Looks like a close up reflection off one of the many flying insects in the frame. The blurriness seems to be the fluttering of wings. Just my opinion.

I can tell the illumination is local.

I figure even with depth of field you're not capturing a distant object in focus.

Your other bugs as mentioned have motion blur.

 

I would need to see other baseline images,

especially ones where you captured a bright plane in the distance to see how the camera performs visually (focus, etc)...

Also, is this the only frame with it?

I would also challenge you to observe other frames to see if the artifact is produced elsewhere....

 

Also, is this constant record or motion triggered or image subject motion detect (fancy software like UFOcapture, etc)........

If it is motion triggered and you don't have many other recordings around the same time, it is definitely terrestrial (close) and not meteor/fireball/bolide.
