SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A Sacramento man scanning the night sky caught a sudden burst of light through his telescope. He recorded that strange sight with his smart phone...
“...I saw another object orbiting this — whatever it was up there...,” said Prychodzko.
...then returned to shoot a second video clip...
“As soon as I put the camera to the telescope it just blew up and I didn’t know what to say,” he told CBS13.

My first thought would be a satellite being impacted by debris (something manmade, space rock, etc)

Sooo where is the vid then?
All we get is a single frame of the 'object' blowing up... which looking at it is exactly identical to a shooting star I saw break up in the night sky above a few years back.
Err so he tried selling the footage on Craigslist a week before taking it to the media, and they (CBS) got a second opinion from a Vatican expert... oh kay.. and im assuming the reason the CBS site hasnt got any of the video on it is because Mr Prychodzko wanted to keep all rights to it which would mean he still wants to sell it.
My verdict... guy was lucky enough to capture a meteor breaking up and threw a little glitter on the story, or someone did.
Unless we get to see the entire vid thats all id say we can think it was... or any other simple explanation.
