Not really. He says it is coming towards them at 03.15, then at 03.30 it is still in the south but 'losing a bit of altitude'. I take this to mean that the apparent movement towards them was an illusion, and it was actually motionless (apart from the slow movement towards the south-western horizon, consistent with the identification of Sirius).The fact that Halt does confirm an object is coming from the south towards him, states it has sent down a beam of light down to the ground, must surely imply it was somewhere overhead.
If it really had been coming towards them during that fifteen minutes it didn't get very far.
