Guatemala, El Salvador, and Nicaragua Space Trash NOT Meteor 22:30 CST 27DEC2016 w/ Videos

The event was observed for over 30 seconds. This was NOT a meteor as reported in the local press and many internet sites. - LunarMeteorite*Hunter

Space trash debris described as a "meteorito" in their local press was observed disintegrating over Central America at 04:30 UTC on December 28, 2016 (22:30 CST on December 27). The event was observed from Guatemala, El Salvador, and Nicaragua. 
Witnesses from Guatemala saw numerous flashes in the sky as the debris re-entered the atmosphere. Several in Guatemala were able to video the event with their cellphones.

The Salvadoran Association of Astronomy ASTRO said the brilliant fireball that caused surprise, excitement and awe by many Salvadorans was also visible from Guatemala City and Managua. "In our opinion, the sighting at 22:30 was a meteor crossing the sky of Guatemala from south to west," Insivumeh said.
