I think I saw this article, or one like it a couple of weeks ago.
For such an activity to survive reentry, it would have had to be a relatively large meteor, likely around 20-40 meters in diameter. Such meteors
routinely (about 3-5 times a year) impact the upper atmosphere, where they usually explode with upwards of megaton energy release. There is often
large amounts of debris that survives these explosions and reentry, and are often small enough to not pose a serious hazard on the ground.
I would be very interested to see the tapes from the US KillSats that likely recorded this event.
