Skip due to entry angle?

One of the pilots did mention it was 'astronomical' in nature (perhaps refrencing altitude and M2 speed), but another one mentioned changes in direction, speed/acceleration and very oddly, upwards ascending movement at the end. None mentioned any colour, flash or tailing/trailing effect.
Sounds like Putin is sending one of his aerial vehicles around the skies to show his muscle.

Aside from his bear wrestling and newly claimed hypersonic throwing capabilities, more likely the US would have more advanced craft at this moment to test drive along the Atlantic highway.

Then again, there's the Chinese who knock out new bridges, dams, powerstations, underground sub bases (in disputed waters), all in the time it takes to boil a kettle.

Their new Daxing mega airport already looks unearthly, and is expected to become the world's busiest, and largest. The opening for 1st Oct 2019 is expected to be 'on-time and on-budget'. Reckon those lads will have a shopping mall up on Mars before anyone else.
