Camera Artifact or UFO?

YouTube - 2 UFO FLIES BY MOON AT 00:58 SECONDS APRIL 23 2010 BY WWW.BCNEWSVIDEO.COM.MOV

Local news believes it's a UFO, but look how perfectly square the "UFO" is...

What do you guys think? The (digital) camera that shot this was a Canon SX20 and it was on digital zoom.

Haha. That is soooo obviously just a glitch in the camera. It's perfectly square, and notice how it's exactly the same color as the part of the moon that it "flies" over. Also, this is just pure speculation, but let's pretend it is a UFO for a second. Obviously it is reflective enough for the camera to have picked up the light of the sun reflecting off of it, so why would it only be visible once it's in front of the moon? The only reason the area surrounding the moon is dark is because there is NOTHING to reflect light. The moon itself doesn't emit light, it reflects it from the sun, which means any nearby object would also have been lit up. Therefore, assuming my theory is correct, it is impossible without a doubt that there was any kind of object "flying" over the moon in that video.
