This one is actually kinda old. I've seen it many times before.
Though I have no memory of it's origin.

This was filmed by Alberto Meyer, an italian amateur astronomer, on April 29, 2007. He shared a folder of his server in order to discuss it with some experts. But someone found it using Google P2P Search, downloaded it and uploaded to Google Video.

The video was originally located here:

Alberto Meyer, the guy who filmed the UFO (an amateur astronomer) shared it in a SPECIFIC discussion board, because he was interested in some explanation. What made the objects difficult to explain was its apparent u-turn. I did emailed Alberto, this was his first reply, via email:

the object only "apparently" changes its path: we can see the change of path if we do not consider that the focus was on the Moon. But, since the Moon was/is NOT still, and the focus was on the Moon, the apparent result is similar to the one of an object which changes path. The object NEVER changed its path: just a few times changed its speed. We debated it some time ago: at the discussion partecipated even the French scientist who discovered one of the newest moons of Saturn: after the discussion and the scientific analysis of the technical data, we assested that it was most likely a balloon which diameter was between 11 and 15 inches, at an altitude of approx 4 miles.
You probably downloaded the excel file in which the data about the subtraction of the movement of the moon is missing.

The size and the altitude were assessed beyond a reasonable doubt.
The problem was the apparent turn, but actually no turn took place

The telescope was tracking the Moon, so in order to see the real movement of the object you should "subtract" the movement of the Moon.
The documentation (provided by Alberto in the board where it was originally discussed)was available in the link i've provided above: to watch the video without considering that data is useless and deceiving: those data contains the values to be applied to the motion and the appearance of the UFO. This type of videos has to be watched with the documentation in the hands.
Here's the full documentation, and the description translated from the original .PDF file released with the video:

Note: the links below don't work anymore, but if someone is really interested i can ask to Alberto a new copy of the .XLS file
Anyway, please refer to this link
every now and then it works

They have no doubts it was a balloon: the assessments made on this documentation were some hight level one, but it's perfectly understandable why the video caught so many people's attention.
