Neither from the picture nor from the description, it can be known about the size of the object. Also, the picture doesn't consist of any background
objects, like tall buildings, etc. so that you can compare the object and its size. Altitude is given in the description, but that doesn't help.
However, there were around 30-40 other witnesses according to the article, so it wouldn't be just plain Al foil or a plastic bag.
The witness describes it as "a flash," so could it be a meteorite? May be, but it doesn't look like that from the picture.
