UFO in HX30V telephoto images?

This UFO (unwanted floating object) shows up on the screen and in all images when using the telephoto end of the zoom. When I zoom out wide angle the UFO gradually moves to the left and out of the picture. I've checked the lens and it is clean on the outside, the only place I have access to on this fixed lens camera. I'm thinking something got inside the lens although the camera is new and has been carefully kept in a soft case in my pocket when not in use. Since i always use the camera wrist strap the camera has never been dropped. I wonder if the salt air being near the surf got into the camera, but this looks like it must be a solid particle of something.

Perhaps someone here has had experience with this kind of UFO (for lack of a better name for it)
