That would have been a daylight pass. Daylight re-entry sightings are rare. The article states that the sightings were
at night and the video is consistent with that. The orbit of the decaying object in question could have made numerous
passes that night. It is not clear to me that the video is not merely stock footage of some past event. Can you find
more precise information on the date and time of the sightings?
