Anamoly in long exposure photo

I was practicing some amateur astrophotography with a Canon Powershot A560, 6 second exposure, ISO 200. During previous shots I noticed a few satellite/airplane type points of light moving across the sky. After taking the photo, it was during review on the computer I noticed the strange object that appeared and the end of the light trail. I am by no means a photo analyzer, I would think that the object at the end of the light trail should appeared "streaked" similar to the trail. Look at the end of the "trail" just above and to the left of the window. The object is moving south. If you zoom in on the object it is a strange shape. Attached is the unaltered, original photo.
