Default UFO?

Okay, I need some help here. I was out taking pictures of a beautiful sky last night and I caught something very interesting. When I was looking to edit the pictures to get the power lines out, there was a metallic object in two of them. The first one is shown below with the object on the right side and about 4 seconds later (I don't have the picture uploaded yet) it was all the way to the left side. I didn't notice this until after I was looking at the pictures on my computer so I don't know anything about its movement. The first picture is simply the original resized. The only reason I started wondering about this was because, when I zoomed in to take the power lines out, there was a visible trail behind the object. In the second picture, the first inset picture (the largest) is a 200X zoom on the object. The inset picture to the top left of it was a smaller zoom that shows the trail behind it. I used a couple of filters and settings in photoshop to accentuate the trail which explains the other pictures. Anyone have any ideas?

I received the message below on Sunday for the Birmingham, Alabama area for Monday. I am not sure where you are, but it appears to be a meteor.

MORNING METEORS: The annual Arietid meteor shower, which peaks this year on June 8th, is a strange one: it happens during the day rather than at night. This makes the shower remarkably hard to see. Nevertheless, you might be able to spot a couple of bright Arietids slowly skimming Earth's atmosphere just before dawn on Monday morning--a rare but beautiful sight.
