Looks much like the decay of a satellite or some other orbital debris.

With the use of this satellite decay prediction website, we might be able to identify what this objects was.

Can anyone give an idea if the direction this object was moving? Date, time, better location of where it was observed?

Meteors usually move faster that the object(s) in that video.

I think it was a satellite or rocket body as well. It was much too slow to be a meteorite, even for Okinawa.

Agreed, but if I propose idea, it may have been weapons testing by someone like NK or China, seems unpopular?

I rather think we'll be reading more about hypersonic missiles in this region sooner rather than later...
