It's a gorgeous video. But there's just one problem. It wasn't taken over Hangzhou, but Kazakhstan, says Geoffrey Forden, an MIT weapons analyst, who is often called upon to analyze mysterious rocket launches and other real unidentified flying objects.
"Unfortunately, this video is not from Hangzhou but from Kazakhstan and was taken on June 30th and shows a Progress M launch from the Baikonur," Forden said. The rocket seen here, in other words, was a routine launch to resupply the International Space Station. "It looks so strange because the upper stages have already left the earths atmosphere and the plume has expanded to many kilometers. It's very unusual to see this from the Earth's surface (and very interesting since it shows the transition from one stage to another) but it is not a black-ops rocket at all."

I was thinking a rocket too when i saw it at first. there is a very prominent rocket trail visible to the far left in the start of the movie.
The expanded plume sure is pretty tho.

looks like some sort of an airship to me, but the music tells me it's something more sinister..
