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'...
