    I reported an event which looked very similar to this, a few months ago.
    I did not witness it first-hand, but I saw the video shown on Swedish TV,
    and an astronomer explained it as an Earth-skimming meteor. A few days
    later, one of the serious UFO organizations in Sweden had obtained radar
    recordings from flight controllers, and determined it was an aircraft.
    The video was very convincing, though.
