So this has been on Reddit and Twitter today. There seems to be two distinct sightings - the UFO that was seen during the day, and then the light that was seen low in the eastern sky after sunset and is captured on video. Unfortunately there is no footage of the initial incident.

This is the location of the sighting. Unfortunately streetview coverage isnt very good here, but we can see from the map that they were looking East. (24.7641743,93.8986769)

Looking East from the airport at this time shows Jupiter low in the sky. It would have been one of the first celestial bodies to be visible after sunset.

Here's a stitched panorama from the video showing the relative position of the moon and where the UFO was seen.1700499562295.png

So it looks like the light on the video is just Jupiter. But who knows what the initial object was.

Jupiter was really bright last night. Hovering in the sky for hours? That really sounds like a planet. Moving westards? Jupiter would have set in the west.
