I actually once saw people doing it, with balloons inflated to about three feet in diameter, and I could see the thing later from over a mile away
very clearly. The glow sticks they used were green. There are better lighting devices, and, yes, the lights in the video are brighter than what I saw.
Pick your toys, but it can be faked.
I think this would be very hard to fake. It follows too much scientific analysis in previous images of the same phenomena. There are hundreds of
videos of grazer meteors, and this falls into the parameters. Of course , like I said earlier on, IMHO, because science will continue to astound us
with with new presentations of what is possible, and to truly believe you have the answer, is not an option for a scientist.
Oh, and sugarcookie, your analysis of rotation is correct, the object is moving too slow to orient itself, however it is actually very fast by any
standards we would use in any reference we would use in our lower atmosphere. As it rotates rapidly, it ejects molten material laterally that
quickly fall into the overall trajectory. Cool Video, and the astrophysicists are really looking at it. The answer will come out.
