I want proof just as bad as everyone else, but:
the proof is there , its speed can be calculated from the known forest that it crosses, also some of the fields. maybe even that bit where the land meets sea.. all known distances..
you have the tools to prove its speed
Some balloons do not experience this brittle failure mode. Instead, they slowly leak helium and descend to the Earth in one piece. This happens to balloons that do not have sufficient helium to rise to the altitude of five miles, which is the breaking point for latex. These balloons travel about 68 miles on a calm day before returning to the ground.

About 80mph, flew low to the ground. Hard to tell what it is from the video, but my guess would be a helicopter.
