Follow up to fireball/sphere- video tape viewed -no explanations worthy

Hello again, I am the same witness that reported seeing a fireball outside my window, high in the sky while repairing my snowboard bindings on Sun morning, the 21 of Jan. at 12:40 am. This second submission is intended as an update after a time of reflection. I originally described this object as some sort of fire ball moving across the western sky into the south in a continuous arching fashion. I previously mentioned that I had fortunately grabbed my digital video camera and tapped this strange event . I have viewed the tape over and over in slow motion frame by frame. This object resembles a golden sphere that sometimes can be seen quite clearly. Unfortunately a was excited as hell and could not hold the camera perfectly still. Upon using the telephoto lens and also zooming out for scale,the object is definately something that is unexplainable by myself, or the 12 other people that have viewed the tape so far. Highly educated and professional standing people that I presented it to have no clue what it is, however, together they all agree that it is definately eerie. I'm not into UFO's, nor do I really want to push this issue with anyone because I dont really want to get hung up on reserching the hell out of it, but it was so strange that I decided to call Transport Canada, Enviorment Canada and believe it or not, I was connected on Sunday morning to Pearson International Airport's control tower shift manager because I actually thought I had a video of a plane in an emergency and wondered if they would need it. I spoke to the shift manager and he had said that there were no reports of trouble in the air earlier that morning. I described to him what I had on tape and he came up with expanations such as a meteor or a plane burning surplus fuel. I see alot of aircraft in this area and they make noise, even high up in the statosphere. This did not make a sound. I even went sofar as to record aircraft and a star from the same window last night to see how they would compare to my original fireball/sphere recording. NOT EVEN CLOSE! After seeing this thing I went to the internet for explanations. I have never been to your site nor any other UFO sites before. I managed to read some similar sounding occurances and have concluded in my own mind that what I saw was definately strange. I will leave it up to who ever views the tape to conclude what it is for themselves. I can't wait to hear the next "explanation"
