An animation of 117 VMC pictures showing a flyby of Mars on 14 June 2019.
Nice view on the northern seasonal ices! (my favorite seasonal process, I studied it during my PhD wink.gif)

Same video rotated of 90° to show a more usual perspective.

Another flyby from Argyre Planitia to Valles Marineris on 14 June 2019.

Small white streak, bottom right, first few seconds of animation. Meteor burning up perhaps?

Being just one pixel in width, it's probably an artifact of the .gif animation.

Yeah, it's an artifact.
The images have been adjusted to keep Mars stationary in the frame.
MEX is actually getting closer to the planet in each shot.
