In no part of the super-8 footage does it look to break apart. Every other body I've seen move that hot and that fast has. Add to that the resonant return it was supposed to make, and it makes me think of a von Neumann probe doing a Leonov type aerobrake a la 2010.
That or a really big asteroid that entered the atmosphere at high speed, skipped back out of the atmosphere without burning up and was never seen again.
