There are numerous objects entering the atmosphere every day. Most are pretty small which we see as "shooting stars". At a guess, it looks like the SF object probably skipped through the upper atmosphere, enough to light up, then may have continued on its journey back into space. Such events are a lot more common than might be thought.
