Couple of things.

No, it doesn't look like a meteor streak, because it doesn't
have that typical tapering you see on almost all meteor photos.
Unless the meteor is going r-e-a-l s-l-o-w. It's also oddly
irregular.

Of course, you might expect some change in apparent brightness
as it goes across the sky in a thicker atmosphere, like on
Earth. But with such a thin atmosphere on Mars, the light trace
would probably be a lot more regular. That might count against
it being something high in orbit, like a moon (although if it's
a rotating satellite the brightness could possibly change).

Third, doesn't it look a little bit like that UFO Tim Edwards
filmed in Colorado a few years back? I'm not sayin' anything,
I'm just sayin'...
