    This was already discussed on Seesat-L. The two videos were reportedly 
    made around 20:00 - 21:00 UTC (22:00 - 23:00 local time). According to 
    SpaceTrack, the Centaur re-entered about 19  hours earlier at 01:23 UTC 
    1 minute.
    
    The re-entry ground track did cross Brazil but at about 00:30 UTC (22:30 
    local time the previous day - April 19). From the location shown on the 
    Universe Today map, the maximum elevation was less than one degree.
    
    The Centaur is not the object in the videos.
