Large fireball UFO filmed over North Carolina

This large glowing object was spotted moving across the sky while intersecting the path of a passing airplane.
The footage was recorded by Kymberleigh Jordan who posted it up on YouTube on October 28th to ask if anyone had any idea what the unidentified object could be.

"Saw this on a drive in South Carolina," she wrote. "I have never seen anything like it before and would really like to know if anyone else knows what this is? I've seen falling stars, and they light up and disappear really fast. This object was moving, but barely."

"You can't even tell it is moving in this video but it was moving downward very slowly. "
One of the most interesting things about the footage is that it also shows an airplane passing directly in front (or behind?) the unexplained object just after the 55-second mark on the video.

Several people have offered their own interpretations, with some suggesting that the object could be a comet or meteorite while others believe that it is more likely to be a rocket launch.

One person even suggested that the plane was there because it had been sent to investigate.

You can check out the video for yourself below - what do you think the object is ?

Nature is amazing. No idea what this is but I wouldn't put my money on slow moving alien spacecraft joyriding at sunset.

It is moving too slow to be anything from space. It could be a plane. The apparent size of the contrail is dependent on the shape and the angle at which it is viewed. An important thing to understand is that all objects moving away from you appear to head towards the horizon line. Objects below appear to rise while objects above the horizon line appear to move downward.

Agreed. It looks to me like two contrails appearing to cross because of the position of the viewer who shot the video. (Stop holding your phones vertically when you shoot video, please. Sorry, I just hate that.) The 'slower' one also only looks slower because of perspective, ie: it's probably coming towards the viewer.

I believe it is a rocket launch and the angle is from directly below the rocket that is headed in an upward flight path. That is why it appears to be moving slowly. Also the jet that looks like it is crossing it's path is actually many miles below the rockets path. Move along nothing to see here.

Looks like a regular contrail to me. It appears to be dusk, so it looks like a fireball.  Contrails will seem move less the further away they are.
