    To me, the "event" and the "something" left behind looks like a thruster
    firing and it's plume. The shuttle may have been in sunlight then and the
    exhaust left by the thruster firing was illuminated by the sun. What gives
    it away I think is that it "stops" immediately.

    Thank you very much to the person who told me where to find
    the video taken from Reno (Sparks, actually), Nevada:
    There's an event visible near the end of the brief movie.
    It almost looks like the orbiter just leaves something
    standing still behind it.  Here's the associated story:
    Knowing when Columbia passed Venus as seen from Sparks,
    Nevada, might give a pretty good time for the occurrence of
    the event.
