Microscopic PONG

I thought i was back in the '80s when I saw this movie!

Does anyone have any idea what the "bat" might be?

N.B It looks extremely regular to be crystaline, but at 10um by 100um, I can't think of anything else it might be.

It's a subliminal incursion of Slashdot on this website. :D

Cheers for the responses...

Not sure about it being some sort of scale - it's VERY small - but then I'm not sold on the crystalline growth from space idea either ;)

Would be nice to have a 'Item of Interest' button to flag up things that are curious but clearly not tracks.
