Ufo trails plane on Google Earth ?

You have probably hear of the term "foo-fighters" those strange orbs that follow planes. A reader sent me image of one apparently captured on Google earth -or is it simply a technical mishap or lens reflection?
You can verify the image is real by seeing from Googles website.
Would like your comments on this one.

If the images can not be taken in exactly the same one-hundredth part of seconds, fast moving object may be a "shadow", as Jämsä example of an aircraft.

The light ball is, therefore, next to the passing plane.
