Do me a favor. Get a protractor.
Go back to the spot where you took this footage.
Record video again, but pan up from showing the ground of the park, up to the flight path line that this object took.
Figure out the angle from the ground to that path. (Please use a measuring tool, no eyeball if possible.) Show the angle.
And determine the exact compass direction, that the object is flying from your perspective.
Was it East north east? West? South?
If you provide the angle, compass direction, and show me the ground level area where you're recording from, I intend to math the crap out of it.
Let's see if we can figure out how fast this puppy was.
Reasons to do this.
To check if it's beyond common flight speeds.
So we can check FAA or local airport flight logs, to see if there was a bird in the air, on a declared flight path there.
Extra YouTube views.
To check if it may have been a meteoroid
Celestial body, ISS, or some other expected phenomena. Maybe there was a jet current up there, and it's a weather balloon hitching a ride on that crazy train. Maybe check NOAA logs?
Also, I'm going to check the MUFON reports, to see if similar sightings occurred in the area.

Fast Moving Dark Orb - Barnsdall Park
I was at Barnsdall Park with a friend, the site of the Frank Lloyd Wright "Hollyhock House", sitting with a friend with a Nikon p900 on tripod to film the white, billowing fluffy clouds against the clear blue sky after the heavy rains had finally cleared.
I didn't see the object while filming, but at no time did we hear the sound of a fighter jet overhead. I've grown up on Air Force bases. We would have noticed this. This was completely silent from our point of view. Also, if this were a jet, the outline would be clear in the closeups...but as the edit crops closer, it appears slightly cylindrical or cigar shaped, with a kind of occasional "flaring" on the ends as it goes.
Several of these dark orbs have been captured on film by people, and several exhibit structure or texture changes as they move...especially when moving quickly. I've written about before:
Dark Orb UFOs
I'm continuing my research on these...what seem to be "energy masses", reading the works of Paul Devreux and Irene Scott. In the meantime, I'm sharing this for the reference of others in case they have similar experiences. Thanks for taking a look.

Pretty certain it’s not a bug or a bird, it flies too strait or fast to be either of those imo
It reminds me of the “Go Fast” military video where the pilots were surprised they could lock on the camera as if they’d tried a thousand times before and failed

This guy provided the exact model of camera in use.
Not every amateur astronomer or photographer is aware, but for a distant moving object, if you have a standard measurement tool for optical light. (A specific model of camera for example)
You can generalize distance and size probabilities based on the focus shift and pixel density changes.
It won't be 100%, but it's higher than 50% accurate, and that's good enough to do it.
