Did you actually read the headline or, at least, the letters that came up at the end of the video?
I'm guessing no. It doesn't say that a UFO disintegrates a meteor, but that, MAYBE, a UFO disintegrates while entering our atmosphere since there have
not been any reports of meteors falling to earth.

Just because he says there were no meteoroid reported doesn't mean anything. Just because we aren't in the forest, does that mean no trees are
falling? Meteorites are always coming through the atmosphere. Hence "shooting stars".
I looks pretty much like a meteoroid to me Cool video though! Not too many people catch such a dramatic disintegration since they mostly happen

That's not what the video says, the video says that what we see is a UFO disintegrating.
And what it looks like is a meteor breaking up, I wonder why they think that a UFO is a better explanation than a meteor.
It could be a
satellite breaking up.
It looks very similar to this video of a satellite breaking up over Australia:
Hayabusa Space Probe Ship Re-entry (HD)
The meteors do often break up and leave trails of glowing particles. But I think the feature in the Hayabusa re-entry which doesn't appear in many of
the meteor videos is the way the broken up parts make fireballs in a parallel front, like the 3 parallel fireballs seen at the leading edge Hayabusa
In fact it looks more similar to that than the meteors in this compilation of meteors:
They all look somewhat different but I'd say in general this "trailing" configuration of the broken up pieces seems to be more common in that
Of course none of these comparisons rule out that the OP video is a meteor. But it does seem to have some features in common with the Hayabusa
re-entry video so it could indeed be a satellite. Wiki says there have been 5400 tons of space junk re-entering over the last 40 years. I don't doubt
that some of those re-entries have been captured on video. We paid more attention to Hayabusa than to a typical satellite re-entry because we wanted
to recover something from it.
Edit to add: Hi Zorgon, I see you posted while I was writing my post.
Yes I thought it might be Hayabusa at first also, but I'm not sure, I couldn't really match it but it could be just a different angle in the OP video
edit on 21-7-2011 by Arbitrageur because: clarification
I probably would have posted first if I hadn't taken the time to upload those pictures. But when I tried to explain to ArMaP in words why I thought
it was a satellite instead of a meteor, the words didn't quite cut it so I thought I needed to show the difference in pictures.
So it really IS a spaceship!? I guess Maussan can get something right, though he probably failed to mention the spaceship is man-made
I really had no reason to think this was something other than a meteor (not "very likely to be an alien spacecraft")... Now, I am humbled knowing that
it was in all probability a satellite. Thanks for the heads up.
