Reflections off a shiny rock -- most likely -- or a vent hole. According to reports, the event repeats when the sun is in the same position. It isn't Elvis. :)

Read somewhere the light spec was only picked up by one of the two stereoscopic cameras. Image experts said the light spec was a cosmic ray particle hitting one of the two camera's image sensor. Seems reasonable and logical to me.
