The article link says this is from this month in 2012, but the video shows it is from 2011. Is that a misprint?
I'd like to know exactly which day it was, and the time. There have been a couple of really good space station sightings over the last few nights
where I live. In the -2.0 magnitude range last PM to the -3.4 event several days earlier.
It moves horizontally too, but often in an obvious arc motion depending on it's elevation above the horizon.
The event with the pieces falling off is pretty definitely a meteor entering. But even the -2.0 space station last night which I watched for around 3
minutes was still about the magnitude of a "normal" looking star, or even Saturn, while the one several days ago was much brighter. Enough to
possibly have aroused interest had people actually been outside looking up, and not stuck plastered to their computer screens!!! And it was almost
directly overhead where I am in the North Western US.
So a positive date and time might go a long way towards identifying this.
