I couldn't get the picture to download. However, I think this is
a video taken a year and a half ago (fall 2000) which indeed
shows a light, but the image is large because of (my opinion)
complete defocus.  If, indeed , it is a defocused image the
edges may appear sharp but any apparent bright/dark structure of
the image is a result of aberrations in lenses and diffraction.
The "bite" out of one edge is where contacts are made to the CCD
(I think) and color changes are a result of scintillation in the
atmosphere when the light source is very distant.

(The overall shape of the image is a shadow of the aperture of
the lens, i.e., of the edge if the lens. IF the aperture is
round, then the image is round.)
