I assume the blurring is exhaust, but it does helpfully blur the face of whatever person is standing on the ramp. Which could very well be a stand-in for Apocalypse, since the ship doesn't quite look like anything we've seen in the films so far — it's unlikely to be the new iteration of the Blackbird, for example. Remember that X-Men: Apocalypse takes place in the 80s, and this doesn't fit that aesthetic either.

So I guess we're coming down on the side of this being a spaceship, which could very well be the ancient AI called Ship. Who does have a history with Apocalypse, and is the currently the most likely candidate for whatever this is.
