So what are you saying, that when a searchlight or beacon is turned on at the ground level, that suddenly there should be no airborne objects like satellites anymore? That's what you call a coincidence? That something happens to be in the air at the same time you're running a beacon?

I personally like the "big ol satellite bigger than Jupiter" that shows up towards the end.
So we have a suspect strobe-like streak being explained as an earth-bound beacon or light from plane through clouds.
Then we have a huge 'something' passing above Jupiter
So instead of putting these two events together, we separate them!
Seems stringing together coincidences is an act of convenience and usually sounds more foolish than the mystery itself.

Also to me it does appear that the light strobes down. If you watch it closely it has a start from top.It is quick, bit it is enough to get a sense that it radiates from above and not below. That is just my humble opinion and perspective though. That is from watching it on full screen too.

Sorry guys, but I can't work out why you are so excited by this.
It's almost certainly just a search light from an air base. You also get jet planes at air bases. The jets may have been interested in something, hence the search light.
This is heavily flagged but to my mind not that massive really...
