Looking at the video, I am not convinced this certainly must be a re-entry. It 
moves over a considerable part of the sky in some 30 seconds. I think a very 
slow, ~12 km/s meteorite producing fireball is also an option that should 
certainly be kept open. Is there anything known about the direction of movement?
