What..The..Hell.. Whatever that is, its NOT a Bollide, Meteor, Meteorite, Comet, Venus, Swamp Gas. Thats something making a controlled de-orbit, and
NOTHING was launched/brought down on that day over Mexico by any Space Agency.
Double checking. The only launches that have occured recently was this morning in Kazakhstan, and there was a launch due on the 27th, however this was
cancelled due to the satellite having a technical problem and launch is expected to now be in 6 weeks.
Other than the ISS/Shuttle in Orbit at the time, nothing else was going on.
EDIT- however thinking about it, a similar thing happened over the UK before and the "fireball" was attributed to sunlight being reflected off a
high-altitude contrail. The way how this object moves suggests to me that this is more than likely a aircraft contrail (being the rational side of me)
however if Controllers can say that nothing was around Popocapetyl at that time, then I'll start to wonder.
Phage I always respect what you have to add but this time I think you may be wrong. I know i know it doesn't happen often but it does happen. I've
seen contrails in a sunset before as I'm sure everyone else here who has seen a sunset at least on this planet. There is definitely an object
involved here in the OP's video and the OP video acts and looks different.
Got anything else?
(Looks like a missle or rocket of some sort to me)
Same thing happened in the UK, Contrail got mistaken for a Meteor and even NASA were mistaken by it for some time, until a ATC controller came along
and mentioned there had been a flight passing through the exact same area 5 minutes before.
I look deep into things to sort thru ignorant distractors to me it looks like a meterior or something falling away from the camera mans view hence why
it was moving slow down ward because it was falling away from earth not str8 down but more angled away from direction of photographer I COULD BE WRONG
THO WHO KNOWS
From the long length of time with no evident disintegration taking place, I'd guess it was pretty much a solid mass and probably a metal. The long
flight of it makes me think the camera man caught it as it started to skim the atmosphere at a very shallow angle. It would have been nice to have
seen the final moments but likely it was hundreds of miles away by then.
