Unknown light in picture of the arizona sky in january

On the night of January 28, 2007 at approx 20:15 I was taking pictures of the ring around Moon caused from moisture in the air. I took several pictures to the eastern part of the sky while using a delayed shutter speed of .7 on a 5 mega pixel Kodak camera.

When I examined the pictures I found a strange light on one area of the first picture I took that was below the Moon in the bottom portion of the picture. Thinking I may have snapped a picture of a commercial aircraft I took several test pictures to check.

I took pictures of one helicopter and two commercial aircraft at different altitudes. When I compared the pictures I found them to be different. This is something I am unsure of and have no area of expertise on. I would like it if someone else could check this out.

Thank you for taking the time to look at this and I would love to get some insight back.
