Description: One of my security cameras caught the above footage of a Chinese Stage 3 Rocket Booster. The rocket booster was used to launch a satellite into Earth orbit. Normally I scan the skies for UFOs, but sometimes I catch other interesting things. The footage was taken at 10:56 PM MST on February 23, 2015. The security camera was a GeoVision IR camera. The rocket booster was seen from Arizona to Alberta. The rocket was launched from China in late December of 2014. The rocket was moving in a northerly direction. The American Meteor Society received over 150 reports from western states and Canada. The Chinese media classified the satellite as a “remote sensing bird,” but NASA believes that the satellite is being used for military purposes.
Note: I only received one report of this object. This is indicative that many people don’t report what they see in the skies.

Good catch! Did it burn up completely, or did any pieces make it to earth?
I don’t know if any pieces made it to Earth? I suspect that most of it burned up before reaching ground.
That is pretty cool! It kind of reminds me of when MIR fell out of orbit. Only this seems slower and a lot more light, but if I remember correctly that came down during the day. This is really cool.
